Konark made waves with one of its first books: Hinduja Foundation Encyclopaedia of Nobel Laureates by Dr. Asoke K. Bagchi. The Nobel Foundation in Stockholm was impressed by this volume and wrote, “It is of great value to have a comprehensive collection of the presentation of the Nobel Laureates. There are already a number of such works from different points of view and of different standards. Your encyclopaedia is one of the best.”
