We have been part of the publishing industry for the past 20 years.
We began in 1992 with Abhida, a journal dedicated to Marathi poetry, which later metamorphosed into a quarterly - Abhidhanantar which redefined and refined the way Marathi poetry was received till then by its readers and presented fantastic contemporary Marathi poets and their works, essays and literary criticism.
This paved the way to getting books of Marathi poetry being published under the imprint Abhidhanantar.
