Awesome Foursome



Today I present my friends from the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) stretch in south Delhi. These four are a part of a larger group that sell magazines and books to the people stuck in never ending traffic jams or those waiting for a few minutes at the traffic signal. I have a special bond with them as these guys know just the magazine that I want to read and bring me the latest issues of the ones I desire. The way they recommend books, it almost feels like they have read the selection themselves. This too is India where illiteracy and child labour is rampant and ironically it is books that help these kids survive.

Our NGO is named Sanskaari. It is a young people's organisation. It is still a kid. Less than 2 years old. We are working on various projects. I would send you some detailed information on your email id. So that you can get a better idea of what Sanskaari is doing and how do we go about our work. I would like you to tell me some method trough which i can do a rigorous online campaigning for Sanskaari as we people are short of volunteers and for volunteers we need to create awareness. I would request you to tell me some method through which i can spread the conciousness about Sanskaari online. I have tried orkut but it did not work out that well. so, if you can give me suggestions for effective networking, I would be thatkful to you.
Also, thanks for reply coz i did not expect that you would actually reply.
good night..
