Great, Congratulations for her achievement.

Many Many Congratulations to her for big Achievement. This will help the library professionals to motivate himself for your work.

No recruitment ................ universities's administration is sleeping................

This is the condition of Indian universities and the University libraries...Pathetic.. I congratulate Ms Konda for her great work..

Is it a cause for 'Celebration' of the devotion of the individual towards her job OR 'Regret' the apathy of university administration towards the plight of the library staff in general and the library in particular?

Congratulations to Aruna Jyothi Madam.
