He said that those manuscripts available in this library were having information about medicine, science, Vedas, technology, Bramhasutras and many other topics.

Mr. Jitendra said that he studied with the support of libraries in his childhood and achieved good position in life and asked the students to use libraries in the best way possible.

Mr. Francis said that the young generation was moving away from the habit of reading books and newspapers and the technology available to them was also one of the reasons for this
