On International Literacy Day, I'm going to post some pictures of our rural public libraries. We have over 5600 rural public libraries; in the last 10 months, a million children have been enrolled free of charge as new members. #readon
Library in Bilikere, Mysuru with a 'bayalu granthalaya' (open-air library) and a lovely garden.

@sanjeevsanyal 1/n -The issue is like this:
1. Entire Collection process in Telecom is outsourced to "Collection Agencies!"
2. The Telecallers, with lil if any data, call up all customers with any Outstanding amount, however low it may be!
3. Once due date is gone, calls & music will start..
@sanjeevsanyal 2/n
4. Once next bill is generated, late payment charges also get levied and keeps getting compounded evey month!
5. So, even if 1 rupee remained outstanding WHEN U CLEARED AMT, or thought u cleared - the cycle of late payment and compunded charges starts!
@sanjeevsanyal 3/n
6. No one bothers to see if amt is for usage or late payment or what!
7. Once u cross 30 or 60 days, depending upon company, ur data gets shared with #HARD Collection agencies!
8. Calls become really tough like banking recoveries!
9. Many even say they R calling frm Court!

Rest in peace Suresh Shah, founder of Sapna Book House, who passed away due to Covid. Started life as a railway coolie & headed Bombay Coolie Association. Started Sapna in Majestic. Published Kannada writers. Remarkable life.
Sapna wasn't a fancy bookstore, no frills but plain vanilla. Something for everyone: exam prep, dictionaries, comics. Lots of books for rural libraries were sourced from there. I found a beautiful new translation of Anna Karenina at the Residency Road store.
Sapna, Nagasri, Premier, Gangarams, Select. They weren't posh bookshops with iced coffee and armchairs, but they sold books and more books, and they kept the city's book culture alive.

If at age 30, you're not yet married, and you're still waiting for one man somewhere to come and marry you before you can start living your life....

This may sound harsh, but're being mean.

1./ You're being mean for letting yourself down and not taking proper care of and enjoying the one life God gave you. For letting your life be a source of discouragement to others who will go through similar life's challenges and delays.
2./ You're being mean for denying your family and friends and those in your sphere of influence, months of unique assistance and testimonies with the impact you would've made by being your best self and living your best life now.
