Pratham Books is looking for TENTASTIC champions

Pratham Books is looking for TENTASTIC champions

Yes, we are looking for champions once again. But this time, it isn't just for our International Literacy Day event. It is for a much larger and a much bigger storytelling drive.

Every year on International Literacy Day, our champions have shared stories across the world in multiple languages. We turned ten this year and wanted to turn the celebrations up a notch.

Join our tribe of champions and commit to conducting ten storytelling sessions for children during the year (including the main one on International Literacy Day). Imagine the number of children we will collectively reach through this massive storytelling drive. The number are boggling and the joy ... infectious!

Make reading contagious by registering to be a TENTASTIC Champion. Read about our previous champions here.

If you have any queries about the campaign, please mail champions(at)prathambooks(dot)org.

A day in the Library


"Everything you need for better future and success has already been written. And guess what? All you have to do is go to the library" - Henri Frederic Amiel

How apt is the quote! Every individual who loves to read books has a story to tell - about books, about the time he / she spent in the library and the atmosphere therein. A library is after all a place which has in store many people living in perfect harmony. And what's more, you get to choose what you want to read.

Did you ever think of thanking that librarian and forgot all about it or more precisely never had an opportunity to bring your thoughts into action....This is the right time to thank your librarian. We in turn are pleased to provide you a platform which would record your thoughts and your experiences. So come forward and share your experiences and let everybody know about it.

All the same, we would love to know how a library and for that matter - any library - your school library, college library, public library etc. have been memorable to you. And so, we are gathering stories from all over about:

1) how libraries have impacted you
2) any special instance / service of your library which you liked / remember

The above stories should necessarily be your personal reminiscences. Although this would be an ongoing project, I request all of you to please contribute your story at your earliest and make this initiative a grand success.

I request everybody and especially the librarians to share this page and the URL link with the maximum no. of people in your Institute and vicinity.

IITs are no more than 'glorified' engineering colleges: UGC Chairman

IITs are no more than 'glorified' engineering colleges: UGC Chairman

The University Grants Commission (UGC) Chairman, Dr Ved Prakash has said that the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are no more than “glorified engineering colleges”.
Dr Prakash while emphasizing upon the importance of universities, said he was miffed at not receiving any research proposals for Singh-Obama initiative from the universities and the same had to be awarded to an IIT.
Thr UGC Chairman said since universities were not coming forward so the initiative had to be awarded to IIT (“IITs ko majboori mein dena pada”) for execution in the wake of country's “prestige”.
“IIT, Kya hai IIT. (What are IITs?). Glorified engineering colleges. University aur IIT mein zameen aasman ka antar hai (University and IITs are poles apart),” Prakash said.
He was all praise for Union Government’s ambitious Rs 22,000 crore project Rashtriya Uchchtar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) and said Punjab stood to gain hugely from it. “I am sure you are going to pick up a major chunk,” he said.
Prakash said that Universities were far more important than IITs. Universities had a higher intake of students, reported Indian Express
