Mobile library helps change Majuli

Majuli is the largest riverine island populated by tribal people in upper Assam has basic medical and educational infrastructure, but to facilitate education on the island, some local people have started a mobile library.

Thirty-year-old Mitu Khataniya who was born in Kamalabari in Majuli, completed his M.A. degree from Dibrugarh in 2003.

Even as he was completing his master's degree he kept dreaming of making education accessible to the people of Majuli and eradicating backwardness.

In 2004, Mitu launched a mobile library to help local students.
