What is worth fighting for?
Kriti Khare

When I was in 7th Grade, I still remember the library at our school receiving this single copy of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. My classmates and the Librarian knew that I was a fan of the series, but there was this classmate of mine who wanted the same book from the library too.

Ideally, since I took less time to finish these books, I should have been given the first chance. And that had happened for the first five books too. But this time, the librarian decided to give this classmate of mine a chance to read. I was furious, but now that I think about it, the librarian killed two birds with the same arrow.

She ensured equality within the class so that no one was pointed out for preferential treatment of any sort. She also ensured equity by allowing this classmate to dive into the magical world of Harry Potter. She was trying to involve more people in reading, and this was perhaps the best opportunity to engage me and my classmates.

That, was wonderful.
