BAHRI PUBLICATIONS is one of the first publishers to publish books and journals on Language & Literature and the first to publish books
and journals on Linguistics in India. It was founded by Dr. U. S. Bahri in 1973 with an aim to venture into the then unnoticed and neglected
field of linguistics in India. Dr. Bahri was himself a struggling scholar at that time researching extensively in the field of Punjabi linguistics
and teaching at Punjabi University, Patiala. Finding no suitable platform to publish his works, he chose to start a publishing house, which
could cater to the needs of upcoming linguistic scholars in India. The aim at the outset was to provide a platform for the upcoming scholars
researching in the area of linguistics, for whom there were not many opportunities waiting. Hence, without caring about the risks involved in
this field, its management continued its mission to see that the studies in linguistics find a place not only in India but also in the world market.
