Rationale[edit]

Anyhow I'm managing well and making them accept to be partners in our project as well as I could make them agree to help wider needs of wikipedia. But As I've said above this takes patience, time and few more visits than we thought of it earlier. And not all visits to libraries also being successful. My srikakulam, vijayanagaram visit has just resulted me with a single library partnership, Unfortunately many of the libraries I've visited in srikakulam and vijayanagaram lost most of their books and not active now. I think every project will face such challenges in order to get successful. You can see these aspects in much elaborated way in my midpoint and learning patterns.

But my project proposal restricting to 2 visits for every library and didn't considered some failures in the visits also. I want to change some basic structure in the budget of this project basing on the practical experience I've got in three months of duration.
