Yes I'm a librarian

Yes I'm a librarian..............
Behind that doctor,
Is me, a librarian...........
Behind that economist,
Is me, a librarian..........
Above those astronomers, is me, a librarian..............
I carry the light even though they mostly make jokes of me...........
Behind all those teachers,
Is me, a librarian..........
I don't qualify for a BPL house nor earn enough to buy an expensive one.............
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me, Some think or even say that I don’t have work, and I am spending time with teachers and students, and yes I do. I have to spend the time behind all the teachers and students to know their requirements at their convenience, and keeping my work aside…
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
Some think or even say that I don’t have work, I spend most of my time on internet, and yes I do. The information getting on their e-mail and providing web2.0 service and maintaining website requires time to spend on internet.
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
Some think or even say that I don’t have work, I spend most of my time on mobile, and yes I do. The documents required by them is reaching in time by communicating with vendors and reminding journal suppliers to get the same in time and providing instant information as SMS or whatsapp services require mobile usage and it also requires high end mobile, I have to spend money from my pocket to provide up to date information to the users….
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
Some think or even say that I don’t have work, I spend most of my time with higher authorities and in admin office, and yes I do. The new initiatives in library require meetings to convenience the authorities and to get work done from admin staff requires time.
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
Students and academicians are enjoying holidays, I am working alone (in office and home, family is also on holidays) regularly and getting stock verified, and evaluating my work during the academic year and planning myself to prepare for the next academic year.
Because I am a librarian.


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
Some think or even say that i don’t have work, i spend most of my time on research and development work, and yes I do. I have to be abreast with new development in the ICT to update myself, teachers and students…
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
Although I am considered as equal to teachers, I am very much depressed by discrimination by authorities and my own teaching community because I am alone nobody is there to support me .......
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
Despite all that I am a librarian and I have to support the teaching and learning... The main source of inspiration is our teacher getting awarded and appreciated for their work and the students are reaching new heights in their life and facing the challenges of the world…
Because I am a librarian........


It doesn't matter how they look at me,
it doesn't matter how much more they earn than me,
it doesn't matter that they drive while I walk, because all what they have is through me, a librarian.. Whether they acknowledge me or not......
I am proud to be a librarian...........
Pass this to all the librarians n make them proud of their career.
