Hi and Namaste everybody!

I am cheerful today to precede you with a loving subject of Guiding Others and picking up from it!

 

I am not going to describe whole story here, simply attempting my best to give looks of it to see how a local guide is vital to the community. Regardless of whether it is tied in with managing on road to help other people or directing in individual life for improvement of an individual or to guiding and aiding in community’s development and prosperity.

 

“Raju, formerly a tourist guide, has just been released from prison and has taken refuge in an old temple by the river. A peasant takes him for a priest and asks his advice on a domestic problem. By uttering a few platitudes, Raju helps him to find a solution and soon acquires a reputation as a holy man. When a drought comes to the district the peasant turns to him for help, and he reluctantly undertakes a fast to propitiate the rain gods. It is at this point that he confesses that he is an imposter, and recounts to one of his followers the tragi-comedy of his love for Rosie the dancer, and the rise and fall of his fortunes as guide, lover and impresario.”

Story started from the book “The Guide” story of local guide at that point of time.

The Guide 

1st published in 1958

By R. K. Narayan

 

Presently what is the co-connection of a neighbourhood manage with this, oh my goodness! what I learned!

 

Perusing this book was intriguing from the earliest starting point, wonderfully described story is the thing that I felt.

 

To be straightforward I read this book 2 or 3 months before enlisting myself into Local Guide Program, I think seeds were sowed so unequivocally and progressed toward becoming seedlings quick there in there just, So I am here today 😊 (I read it again before posting this article/ thread)

This book the distance looking at directing individuals such that it will be useful to them as a person as well as for the entire community, independent of gender, cast, appearance or religion.

 

theguide_6_original.jpg

 

 

 

Voyage of this local guide starts with managing individuals as prestige visitor guide in the little town 'Malgudi' in southern piece of India, as he was notable Guide for his insight about the spots and helping his visitor ordinary till he is going with them.

 

At that point swings to be a darling guiding his adoration "Rosie" and bringing her up by recognizing, finding, respecting and supporting her ability of moving and taking this long time unidentified rather disregarded ability to the level where entire nation acknowledges it and end up known to everybody, including in daily papers, TVs a total change from a housewife to a prestigious Dancer, well performing artist of the town and the nation.

 

"Marco", another character a nature sweetheart, explorer, excited about composing reviews, Husband of 'Rosie' in this book he lost his adoration life, his significant other, for his energy of finding and going to verifiable places and assembling as much as data about the place and writing it down, to impart it to others, overlooking everything around.

Later Raju, being a detainee and in the wake of leaving it turning into an otherworldly guide for well bringing of the community, scarifying from various perspectives for the reason and toward the end giving life for the immense reason. On account of his scarification the place a little town, ends up known to entire world.

 

theguide_8_original.jpgimage source-licencesThese 2 things are identified with Reviews what we put on Maps   

  • Portrayal of the spots - an entire display or Street View empowered by words

 “The shade of a tamarind tree across the road. It was an ancient, spreading tree, dense with leaves, amidst which monkeys and birds lived, bred, and chattered incessantly, feeding on the tender leaves and fruits.” (para from the book  “The Guide”)

 

  • Individual discoveries – a Real-time and to the point and definite data/portrayal about the spots.

 “The entrance to the cave was beyond a thicket of lantana. A huge door on its rusty hinges stood open. And, of course, all the crumbling brick and plaster was there. It was a cave with a single rock covering its entire roof: why any man should have taken the trouble to build a thing like this in a remote spot was more than I could understand.” (para from the book  “The Guide”)

 

What's more, third one is about 'Marco' and his enthusiasm towards the spots and voyaging overlooking everything around.

 

 

theguide_9_original.jpg

 

 

This book reveals to us our identity as Google Local Guide, what's more, that it is so imperative to community, what are our duties towards it and how it will encourage community.

 

Why one should contribute and help community?

 

Thus, shortening the story (not mine, nor yours it is ours), I might want to share my emotions as a patron that I am associated with an awesome reason and feel pleased being a Google Local Guide.

 

Here in this book 'Raju' a Local guide helped and guided the general population around him, at some point for cash, some of the time for his affection 'Rosie' and in conclusion, imposter turns genuine "Swami" for the community, in other way, I would state for half he can possibly imagine he guided to receive something consequently, yet in later part he guided with his spirit for the group and scarified his life.

 

What are we up to?

 

theguide_4_original.jpg

 

 

 

Presently, here I am welcoming every one of you to share 'Why are you guiding others? In remarks, lets share with everybody to know and grow more.

 

 

A debt of gratitude is in order for understanding, I am certain you adored it.

 

 

On a lighter note: I am not advancing anything here (as the book has capacities to advance itself since decades) however I for one suggest you read this book in the event that you find anyplace.

 

I am sad in the event that I missed anything or else touched anything unwittingly  

 

 

Cheers and Happy Guiding :)
