Book Give Away in Eenadu Sunday Magazine

Dear all,

It is my pleasure to let you know that the initiative "Book give away" has now been published in Eenadu.
Article link:


Title of the article: Ichukuntu Puchukuntu (Giving and Taking)

However interesting the book might be, we will read once or maximum twice. After that, we will place it in  glass shelves. After placing in shelves, we will place it in the attic. After a while, the insects eat them. And soon we sell the books in second hand.
Should a book that changes our life end like this?
Unfortunately, we don’t have the habit of sharing our books. Even if we give, we fear if it will be returned.

Eradicating these fears and thoughts, Nivedita, a  25-year-old, living in Hyderabad started an initiative through Internet.
Nivedita once went to Pondicherry where she met a book lover. Her world and house was filled with books. Among the many books, Nivedita felt like reading few books and asked her for four books. She asked hesitating if she could read those four books and then return it without spoiling it.
The books lover laughed and said take it as a gift and give it to someone else after reading it. I don’t like to keep books like slaves, instead we can set them free.
Without any financial expectations, exchanging of books just for the love of books would be beneficial. Taking this initiative forward, this book give away took shape in form of a blog.
A book always seems new no matter how many times one or many people read it. The scent and the content renews every time a new person touches and reads it. A new perspective is added.

Personal thoughts: 

Currently, my better half and I are looking for venues where these books can make a difference in people's lives. Book Give Away link:
