Today I want to share with you all an issue I have felt and my dream to work on its remedy. To build a better world we need to read more and provide access to maximum people to read. I need not to explain here on this forum how important it is to read for everyone. But unfortunately, rural India has very poor infrastructure which can provide them access to libraries.
To start with I am working to establish a Public Library in my village. I want to start with small scale from my village and its cluster villages. My Aim is to build encourage and motivate in order to build reading habits in kids, youth, have them access to best books and learn with creative resources we can source from any part of the world. And help adults as well to be part of it so the process doesn’t stop with just kids and they also have access to knowledge at their door step which can improve their life and help us build a better society and world together.
This will be a free service for everyone who want to access the library. Plan is to start everything in my next India trip this Spring/Summer. I would request you all to support the cause so that people from village can also get access to a library. You can contribute either by donating books or supporting infrastructure development.
Books (new or used preferably in English, Hindi including western dialects, Urdu, Punjabi) of different categories you can donate, including but not limited to Literature (All genres), Science, Mathematics, Geography, History (Indian and world), General Awareness. magazines, Encyclopedias, Languages, yearbooks, Competition exams, religious, Psychology, Philosophy, computers, engineering & technology, NCERT reference books, Health & Nutrition, Agriculture, Business, Hobbies, travel, fine arts, music, education, sports, law, politics, culture, environment or anything you think can help.
We are also creating a separate section for regional literature for Haryanavi, Khadi Boli, Braj, Shekhawati, Mewati, Ahiwati as an effort to preserve and promote work done in regional languages in form of writing, music, art, history, so anything you can find anything related to Brihad Haryana region (Haryana, Delhi, WUP, North Rajasthan) please share. I am looking for books for these languages because the people from this area can relate to language and culture of this whole region mentioned here.
You can be part of this initiative by supporting the cause in any capacity: -
1. Doante Books (Used or new doesn’t matter, knowledge has no expiry)
2. Donate computers (again used or new but should be in working condition)
3. Donate stationary of any kind
