I passionately believe that we need a public library system that is on par with the best in the world, and is accessible to all.
I have not met any Indian who has not returned from the US, glowing with praise for the public library system there. I myself think most of my real education happened rather late in my life, in the early eighties, when, for
seven years we led a nomadic existence in the US, with little opportunity for entertainment except for the free libraries in every city we lived in. I will always be grateful for the warm welcome, the quality and the variety of books and the frequent events and discussions held there.
