About Katha Books

India has always been a land of storytellers. Told by traditional ‘katha vachaks’ or village storytellers and one’s favourite grandmother, we have all heard stories that have taught us our values, our morals, our culture. ‘Katha’ or the narrative is a special legacy that continues to exist in our country as a rich and fascinating tradition.

Since 1991, Katha Vilasam, the Story Research and Resource Centre of Katha, has fostered and applauded quality fiction from 21 Indian languages in the voice of over 600 writers and translators, bringing the best of these diverse worlds to a wider readership.

Today, we have over 300 published titles, including picture books for children, novels, poetry, biographies, critical essays and commentaries, anthologies of award-winning stories by master storytellers, stories that subvert stereotypes and celebrate the glorious polyphonous multiplicity that is India.

Katha’s children’s publishing programme boosts reading initiatives with stories that have been explored in-depth for their effect on impressionable young minds. Our books introduce children to the diverse regional influences of our own country as well as to international bestsellers for different age groups.
