You reached this page! That's a relief! I was half worried you might have chosen to ignore my message.Now that you are here. I am trying to get at least 20 people to know about and support me to fund a special project of UWM called 'Lets Read'. Its a beautiful joyous initiative that aims to get a curated set of 5 beautifully illustrated, age and context appropriate books to a child who cant afford a non academic book. The project believes that the right book at the right time with full ownership of the book could be the trans-formative trigger that could inculcate a lifelong joy of reading. The library bags go to poorly resourced govt schools.That is the short simple of it. The long detailed version I would be very happy to tell you..over a coffee, if you like.Each multiple of Rs 500 covers one child and and a portable library of 125 books for municipal schools costs 12k.Join me in getting those books to them?

About Me
I have always been a bookworm. By the time I graduated, my reading diary had over 1000 books in it ranging from pulp fiction to staggering works of genius, but it all started when i was first gifted a book when I was 8. An Enid Blyton- Famous five book that unleashed in me an insatiable curiosity to expand my world through the imagination and experiences of others. My life is incredibly enriched for it.If one could inculcate the love of reading and make reading enjoyable, you have enabled an unmatched self improvement tool. I just love being able to gift these books to those unseen children and let them do as they please with it. The library bags come with reading sessions, storytelling , more supervised interventions.
