HYDERABAD:  Reading may be becoming a rare habit among kids these days, but for nine-year-old Akarshana Satish it is an integral part of her life. 

Hyderabad Commissioner of Police Anjani Kumar was all praise for her and appreciated Akarshana for collecting over a 1,000 books to set up a library at the MNJ Cancer Institute.

It was her dream to set up a library for the children at the institute in order to take their mind off their excruciating treatment cycles. For this, Akarshana collected 1,036 books, including storybooks in Telugu, English and Hindi, and a few colouring books, from her friends and family over the last one year. 

The officials at the institute also encouraged the initiative by converting a play area into the library. 
Anjani Kumar appreciated Akarshana’s effort and awarded her with a memento.
