Our generation people will always remember you sir.

Thanks and Regards

>Dear Mr. Haravu,
>It is a wonderful New Year gift to the library professionals in India and also the other countries in the Developing World. You and your team worked so hard to make it one of the best product and many libraries will benefit by using it. One of the main reasons for delay in the implementation of Library Automation in India is because of non-availability of a good high-end software with all the functions and standards like NewGenlib. Your other contribution in the form of text-book (Library Automation) has become valuable to the professional community. It is the only text-book of its kind from India.
