Donate your books.......
One song keeps playing on local radio station in Mumbai all the time
‘Book deke dekho
Book deke dekho
Book deke dekho ji
Book pardne wallo
Book deke dekho ji
Which simply means “donate the story books for children”
And every time, there is a different child expressing her/his desire to read stories
Like for example, Right now, I can hear one child on Radio, saying "My name is Nagma, I am ten years old. I want to read the story of Ali Baba and forty theives" and then somebody else is saying.. "old or new, what was your favorite book during your childhood? donate your books for children like Nagma.....
On 23rd April, Radio Mirchi is celebrating their seventh anniversary and they want to celebrate it in an unusual way. They are planning to collect books and help donate the books to the underprivileged children who can then be encouraged to read.
This is a good movement, which promises to develop an interest in reading the books. There are 'Crossword book stores' spread all over the city of Mumbai and people are requested to donate their book to their nearest ‘Crossword’ bookstall. Radio Mirchi plans to collect the books from Crossword and donate it to the needy.
By donating good quality, well chosen second-hand books to the children, you are not only helping children read but you are also showing that you care.
You are requested to donate your books before 22nd April…..
I am going now to the bookstore…....what are you waiting for?
The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),
.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
