School librarians in India are a particular species who done all the work single handedly and at the same time declared to be “jobless ” by the fellow teachers.

Some tries to score extra runs by entitle them the duties of caretakers, tour operators, escorts, arrangement takers,etc.

The mindset of some people never changes.They live in the age of unmovable,congested shelves of yesteryear’s and don’t want to see the light of new horizons.

Sometimes it is very tiresome to download a .pdf file. In India, in this emerging broadband age also it takes a lot of minutes.

How can we achieve the horse power of bandwidth?

In that time only we  can think about the E-nabled people and E-nabled Goverment

Doing M.Phil. in Library and Information Scince now a days is a habit of jobless freshers and in job wanderers.

After MLISc you are in a stage with an eager to be an information specialist in a big library, mostly in academic type and for the sake of it, you never mind parttime training in a small library.

But when you interviewed by a group of people who remaind you many times that you are a fresher  and you  may exclaim ,how to be experinced without getting a job, you land in for “Research” .

To Sir with Love

by E R Braithewaite

Great books are simple. This also. It is an autobiography with no strings attached. It depicts the post war London of 1940’s with clarity and objectivity through the life of a retired RAF young man whose skin was black.

I like this book for its simplicity and courage.
