Mamata Banerjee walks into school textbook via Singur 21.2.2017 DNA: India
Mamata Banerjee is making sure no one forgets her, especially school students. In a revised edition of Class VIII history textbooks, the exploits of the West Bengal Chief Minister has been made mandatory reading for students, as the Singur movement has now been added to the syllabus. Entitled Otit O Oitijhho (Past and Heritage), the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education added a chapter on popular people's movements and the Singur movement figures with the Telangana, the Narmada Bachao and Silent Valley movements.

Mamata's Note Book attacks BJP on demonetization 28.1.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee launched a tirade, not through a speech, but through a book against demonetization at the ongoing Kolkata Book Fair. Titled Note Book, the book, released with four others, is all about the ill-effects of demonetization. It is interesting to note that the books were brought to the Kolkata Book Fair in the evening on Republic Day. Organisers say that a sixth book, Khusboo, is expected to hit the stalls on Saturday. It is not unusual for the chief minister to launch books penning her thoughts at the Book Fair every year and this year too it was no different. Speaking about why she felt there was a need to bring out a book on demonetization, Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Subrata Mukherjee said: "She loves to write on issues of importance and this book will help us reach out to more people on the ill-effects of demonetization."
