Who is Responsible...............

Since long we have been witnessing and subsequently discussing regarding the downfall trend of LIS profession and professionals. Despite of blessed with ICT tools, LIS profession is not able to cope up with need of the users coming from the cross-sections of the society. Every next second we are getting a new e-query regarding very basic services supposed to be performed by the person in charge. What are the reasons of this situation that every new recruitee is find him in a soup and try to make every best possible effort to find out the answers of very basic nature questions? The reason may be any one of the following……………
1. LIS Curricula is not updated enough so that a student can have the latest and up-to-date knowledge of practical environment.
2. Do the learned faculties are not getting required time and proper infrastructures to keep update themselves?
3. Are the students now a days are interested only to getting a degree by using any of the means so that they can decorate their C.V.s
4. Does the new entrants feared to take challenges and not capable to convert their theoretical knowledge in practical terms?
5. Does the govt is only interested only in framing the hard core policies and setting up certain working groups to evaluate the situation?
6. What are the major roles of reputed Associations in this profession are they just limiting themselves by organizing seminars and workshops from time to time.
In the light of above queries, who is responsible for this downfall………
1. Educators
2. Students
3. Curriculum
4. Govt.
5. Associations

My dear friends, I just want to clarify myself as these questions are haunting my mind since long.

Librarians continue to be knowledge professionals. Would you like to communicate to the Principal Blogger of India Librarian directly? email to .- .- 1816gbgv
Teachers have a very special place in the society. They have the instinct to recognize talent and nurture it. They are the creators of responsible citizens, who contribute to the society in one way or the other. Students, especially the small children, often consider their favorite teacher as the perfect person on earth.
Teachers are considered the mentors, who not only guide a person academically, but also instill moral and ethical values in him/her.
Celebrations are parts of every type of relationship. When it comes to teacher and student, Teacher's Day becomes the golden opportunity for both of them, to honor their unique bond and also appreciates teaching and the people who have opted for the profession. It is a day, when students approach their teachers and extend their sincere gratitude to them. It is the time to pay tribute to them, who have shaped up our career and imparted knowledge to their students, not just to excel academically, but also to develop their personality. I would like to offer my gratitude towards teaching community in following words---
God understood our thirst for

Knowledge, And Our Need To Be Led
By someone wiser;
He needed a heart of compassion,
Of encouragement, and patience;
Someone who would accept
The Challenge Regardless Of The
Someone who could see potential
And believe in the best in others . . .
So he made teachers

……..Happy Teachers Day…………..
