“Donate a book, Educate a child”

This was the theme of our Book Bazaar event.

We went to many homes, and we were surprised at the volumes of books which people donated for the cause! A team of volunteers spent a sleepless night in the venue in sorting out these heaps of books! From Java to Cooking recipes, from Ayn Rand, John Grisham to JK Rowling :- All sorts of books made their presence!

Next two days we had hundreds of visitors, and books were sold at just 20/-, and they were picked by vivid book readers like hot cakes!

We had some sweet little visitors also:

Lots of work, Lots of fun. We learnt lot of logistic, finance, public interaction and advertisement methods. We also raised thousands of rupees for the Sri Sri Ravishankar Vidya Mandir  Rural Schools! These schools provide free education and mid-day meal to students from villages, and these students are the first generation of literacy in those areas.
