The Vizag team of Human Library

The much-acclaimed Human Library has finally opened its doors to the city of Vizag. The program focuses on creating a platform for people, or “books” as they are termed here, to share their stories of overcoming obstacles, stigma or prejudices among “readers” who either want to listen to the story and get motivated, who want to start a conversation, or those who want to know that they are not alone in their fight for a meaningful life. First started in the city of Copenhagen in the year 2000, the Human Library has been loved by one and all and has spread throughout the world. The credit for bringing this program to our shores goes to organisers G. Keerthana, Gayatri Bala, and Saketh Roy. The three of them, who were much-struck by the idea when they saw the program’s impact in Hyderabad, wanted to bring it to our city so that our people could benefit from it. Soon, they applied for the licence to open a wing in Vizag and got approval in 6 months. The team is now looking to reach more people by increasing its members and its collection of “books”, and hopes to conduct events on a large scale. So, we can definitely look forward to read a lot of inspiring “books.”
