Let’s talk

Life of an Indian Librarian

Some of us never like to say we are in this field, Why?

We hesitate to explain what is in a library and what we do there.

Let’s consider another professions. Take that of a teacher, may be he/she teaches in a school, college or anywhere.If one asks what she is, she proudly says it “I am a teacher”. But, we librarians cover it up with fancy titles such as information manager, information officer, information scientist and a lot. We think that it is not good to be a mere librarian.

One of my librarian friend opines.

In Kerala among NRKs (Non Resident Keralites), Gulf returnies and new generation techies it is considered to be great to call your father “Daad” and mother”Mumm”. The complex is the same.

Yes, our musing is far away serious from that simple generalisations.
