The invisible Indian library - Thought for the Day

"It would take a lot of dedication—and the revenues of more than a hundred villages today—to create proper public libraries, accessible to all, across India. But the difference it would make in our daily lives is incalculable. We’re very good at constructing malls; it seems that every city and small town now has its own shopping paradises. How hard would it be for a nation of mall-builders to construct a few good public libraries alongside?" SPEAKING VOLUMES, Nilanjana S Roy / New Delhi May 01, 2007, Business Standard
