Librarians as Mentors Durable Link to this BLOG
My mother went to a literary function to remember Gourish Kaikini and met many people.

Times of India has a report here.

She was most fascinated to meet her childhood librarian!

My mom is 75 years old, so you can imagine how old is the librarian. They were seeing after some 60 years!

Amazingly, he remembered the little girl Jyotsna who "loved books" and was so happy at the heights she reached.

I think it is very cool.

I remember my childhood librarian -- Charudi. I wonder where he is, since there is no library now in Honavar. (OK, there is a library that I built we built)

But I remember my friend G.D. Bhat and I had read each and every book in the library and plead with Charudi to issue us novels (we were 10 years old, and wanted to read romantic novels).

He would not give them to us --saying we were too young and he didn't want our mind get "twisted".

I hope I can meet him one day and perhaps confirm that his fears did come true ;-- )
