"If being is pure consciousness without ego, having is pure ego without consciousness."(Source : The Speaking Tree, Times of India, January 8, 2011 Saturday).
Being Librarians, we too are human, we too are perfect and imperfect at the same time, we too have feelings, we too may fall far behind in terms of professional ethics at times. Being Librarians does not bar us from knowing some of the eternal truths that make us come out of shallow and limited understandings. If we learn to be in the state of being instead of having … our life will be more enjoyable … more fruitful. Let us provide our services being in the state of Being …. Let us not graduate to the stage of Having which is a host of possessions and attachments. We are in a noble profession… let us be selfless… let us not always be in search of rewards and accomplishments. In our pursuit of excellence …. In our pursuit of being the best in the state of Being …. If rewards and prizes follow … let us acknowledge the patrons…. Society at large who made us think that way … who made us graduate towards excellence. Cheers! We are in the this lively and scholarly profession. Thank God.
