ఒక వీడియో చేయాలన్న, ఒక బ్రోచర్ చేయాలన్న, ఒక ఆక్టివిటీ చేయాలన్న ఎంత సమయం కేటాయించాలో తెలిస్తే మీకు ఒక అవగాహన ఉంటుంది... అందులో డబ్బులు ఖర్చు చెయ్యకుండా వాలంటీర్ గా చేసే పనులకు ఇంకా ఎక్కువ శ్రమ, సమయం కావాలి. అయినను అన్ని పనులు కూడా ఇలా 1 గంట వాలంటీర్ గా కేటాయించాలని వచ్చి సమాజం మీద ప్రేమతో ఎక్కువ సమయం ఇస్తున్న కార్యకర్తలతోనే చేస్తున్నాము...
ఉదాహరణ నిన్న సినిమా వారితో చేసిన బ్లడ్ డొనేషన్ వీడియోనే తీసుకుందాం... దీని కోసం పద్మిని అక్క, శ్రీకాంత్ వారందరికీ మెసేజ్ లు పెట్టి, వారి దగ్గర కలెక్ట చేసి, మనకి పంపి, మహేష్, నేను గైడ్ చేస్తే పాపం సతీష్ 3,4 సార్లు వీడియోస్ ని జాయింట్ చేసి, ఎడిట్ చేసి, అప్లోడ్ చెయ్యడానికి అందరిది కలసి కనీసం 10 నుంచి 15 గంటలు పడుతుంది. Blood Poster చేయడానికి ఫొటోస్ కలెక్ట్ చెయ్యడం, డిజైన్ అన్ని కలిపి ఇద్దరు వాలంటీర్స్ కి కనీసం 2 గంటలు పడుతుంది. ఎందుకంటే మనం నిపుణులం కాదు కదా.. ఎదో మనకి వచ్చిన దానికి మరి కొంత నేర్చుకుంటూ ఇలాంటివి చేస్తుంటారు వాలంటీర్స్..
ఇదంతా ఎందుకోసం చేస్తున్నామో మీకు చెప్పనక్కరలేదుగా... మంచి పనులు చెయ్యడంతో పాటు, చేస్తున్నవి చెప్పడం కూడా ముఖ్యమే... ఎందుకంటే అలా చెయ్యాలి అనుకున్నవారు ఇలాంటి సమాచారం కోసం ఎదురుచూస్తుంటారు.....ఈ సమాచారం వారిని చేరాలంటే మిమ్మల్ని దాటాలి కదా... దాటాలంటే మీరు నలుగురికి పంపాలి కదా...
కనీసం కొంతమంది లో అయినా అవగాహన, ప్రేరణ కలిగి రక్తదానం చేస్తారని, తలసీమియా గురించి తెలుసుకొంటారని, స్కూల్ పిల్లలకి పాటలు చెప్తారని... ఇలా మనం చేస్తున్న వివిధ రకాల సేవా కార్యక్రమాలలో మనతో పాటు సమాజ సేవ చేయడానికి చేయి కలుపుతారని...
మంచి విషయాలను చూడడానికి సమయం లేని ప్రస్తుత పరిస్థితులలో, మంచిని పంచే కనీస ప్రయత్నం కూడా మనమే చెయ్యాలి, చెయ్యమని కూడా చెప్పాలి.... చేయకపోతే ఎలా.
మనకు సమయం లేదా... లేక సమయం ఇవ్వవడానికి... మనస్కరించడం లేదా? ఆలోచించండి అని మన 7వ వార్షికోత్సవంలో తనికెళ్ళ భరణి గారి మాటలు గుర్తొచ్చాయి...
ఇది అశ్వలో సభ్యులు అనుకున్నవారికి నేను చేసుకుంటున్న విజ్ఞప్తి.... మనందరం ఇలా సమయం ఇచ్చి సమాజం కోసం ఎదో చెయ్యాలి అనే ఒక తపనతో పని చేస్తున్న, లేదా చెయ్యాలనే భావం ఉన్న వాళ్ళమే కదా... మనమే మన, మన తోటి కార్యకర్తల పనిని, ఇస్తున్న సమయాన్ని గుర్తించక, నలుగురికి షేర్ చెయ్యకపోతే, చెప్పకపోతే... ఇంకెవరు చేస్తారు, చెప్తారు?.
కార్యకర్తలు పడుతున్న కష్టానికి మనం చేసే చిన్న సాయం ఇది.. అలా చేసే సమయం మనకి ఉందా లేదా అనేది ఎవరికి వారే నిర్ణయించుకోవాలి

Me and Haritha Vemulapalli Successfully completed our workshops on "CHILDREN and LIBRARIES" facilitated by BOOKWORM and organized by WIPRO FOUNDATION.
Even though this workshop was for short periods (24th Nov to 30th Nov, 2019 and 12th to 14th Feb, 2020... Followed by 2 month Project Work) it really opened up many thoughts and questions to get more understanding about Libraries. I can say that perceptions of libraries has deepen and widened. So called rooted assumptions disappeared.
Thanks to #Bookwormgoa and Wipro for giving us this opportunity :)
The personal relatedness and heartful touch Bookworm added to every activity made me to learn and relate more and created that emotional connect too.. This is the standout feature which we need to learn and implement, how lovely feeling it is, still fresh.
