    Mysore :

    ‘Pusthaka Dasara,’ an initiative of MyLISA to promote the use of books and reading habit, has a lot of relevance in the modern society. This unique programme aims to connect the books and their readers.

    Commenting on this activity of MyLISA, Prof. P. Venkataramaiah, former Vice-Chancellor, Kuvempu University, said “it helps in making people develop interest in studying books belonging to varieties of topics. I hope MyLISA is capable of floating this programme in a very big way and take it forward.”

    MyLISA had recently appealed the public of Mysore to donate the used books to ‘Book Dasara 2014.’ In response to this, MyLISA received donations from Prof. P. Venkataramaiah and Prof. K. Chidananda Gowda, former Vice-Chancellors from Kuvempu University, Dr. Tirumala Rao, family members of late Dr. Mihir Mahapatra, Udayanarayan and so on. A few institutions have also come forward to donate the books.

    Dr. N.S. Harinarayana, Secretary, MyLISA, said “there has been an overwhelming response from the public to the call from MyLISA. Interesting books in subject areas such as Biographies, Chemistry, Commerce, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Food Science, General Knowledge, History, Management, Philosophy, Physics, Religion, Political Science, Science, Sociology, Fictions, Literature, etc., have been received by the donation.

    He added that a significant amount of children books have also been donated by the public and a list of 900 plus books already received is hosted on the MyLISA website http://mylisamysore.weebly.com

    MyLISA will distribute these books to the libraries of schools and colleges at no-cost basis through an exhibition to be organised in October 2014.
