The Vision for Swadeshi Library

A library, a wish to own my own library is something that still keeps me alive and going.
I have name in mind too...I even collect books have made a little collection so that one day...if ever and i know i will by the grace of god start my library...that collection will be quite useful...
For that purpose i intend to create a charitable trust...which will run the library...this to ensure a smooth running of the library...and ensuring that its not treated as a business but as a mission...
A mission to end ignorance in the world ...by the bright knowledge which books give us.

Yes that's one of the reasons..for starting the library...
Another one is that...in my teenage and now in my youth...i don't find any encouragement for young readers...the age when a reading habit should be developed...in my city i don't find any good library
...school libraries are not very encouraging..though useful but only in limited ways...the pressure of studies forcing parents...to neglect and even turn against reading habits which they see as a major distraction...so i think that if my trust runs a library i think i can create more awareness...and provide a great platform for voracious readers to read from a vast pool of books made available to them...also many people i guide ... and that's my experience ...they re confused as to what to read...or ignorant about many good authors ,,simply because of the clutter of books in the market...they don't know which to read...which is good for their age...so many doubts in the mind...
this library of mine will have a personalised approach...so that people especially young ones get the best books for themselves...
Also financial restraints discourage many people to purchase books and limits their reading habits...take this example...i buy books from my pocket money...assuming an average book is of around 150 bucks i cant buy a large quantity ... at one go...so as to think of the poor and the underprivileged..i see many of them wanna learn but they work to earn money...a library providing them the best books can do wonders for them...and also to the poor children...whose parents have very little to spare for their school fees...a library if i create one...can be extremely helpful to them...
Also their is a small selfish reason to this...i want to devote my life to social service...and this is a cause very close to my heart...also i have bought many books my collection has more than 100 of these...if i hand them to the trust i create...i think they will be well preserved...and well maintained there...
I could have created the trust after i turned 18 but i need money and resources...
Friends and family made fun of it when they heard my idea...and its the money that stopping me...which i need to get the trust registered....rest i have around 200 odd books to start the library...the next major problem would be infrastructure ... which i tend to sort it out with time..
Since it is a trust...i wish people will donate money generously and not only money also i can ask people to donate some old books if they don't need them...am sure many people have some of those...which will further strengthen my collection of books..
I know am dreaming high...but i also know that i have the ability to create this library....
and though am quite optimistic that the money angle will get sorted out by the will of God...
sometimes i still get into deep thoughts...that Tushar will u be able to pull this through..???
and then i get the answer...I wanted to do this since was a kid..and now Even as adult i wanna do this..all i need is the willpower and patience...
May God fulfill my heartfelt desire
