*Sri Paturi Nagabhushanam - The Visionary of Library Services *
Sri Paturi Nagabhushanam born at Pedapalem in Guntur
District of AP is one whose name evokes a sense of reverence and gratitude
in the minds and hearts of the Librarian fraternity in India.
Mother Teresa once said "There are no great acts, only small
acts done with love". This adage suits Sri Nagabhushanam to the hilt as the
seeds of wisdom and knowledge he had sown in the villages of Rural AP truly
His pioneering efforts in spreading the cause of book
reading earned him the honorary title "The Doyen of the Andhra Library
Movement. He was a freedom fighter, a Gandhian in life style. He set up
Libraries in about 160 villages of Guntur district. He also organised Boat
Libraries between Pedavadlapudi and Kolluru & Pedavadlapudi and Pidaparru,
1935-42. This became a national sensation. He was the secretary of APLA for
more than four decades.
With the serenity of a seer, he led the Library Movement
forward for more than five decades. His sense of cpmprehensive vision,
sacrifice and compassion and commitment to the cause of Library Movement in
India is worth emulating.
