Hello Everyone ,
Good morning with big smile.
Today is a very special day because it is Khushboo's Birthday.
 I have a special news to share about her, the Fashion Designer of B2BLC.
Last year Khusboo went to Spain, France and Malta  for 45 days, and that 45 days changed her point of view towards life, as it changed  mine 13 years ago. Now she is more open to the world, ready to grab every opportunity that comes to her way.
Last year everything was very special for her because of the people she met, places she visited, and in one of those places with special connection, a beautiful Angel, from Malta, gave her the opportunity of exploring herself and learning more about Fashion.
 In this month of June she is going to Malta for 3 months thanks to two angels who will guide her to learn more about Fashion.
I really want to thanks Charles Borg  & Ron Van Maarschalkerweerd for their support and help, it means a lot to us.
I am very proud of Khushboo for the way she is growing everyday for better, now when  I look back I feel so happy cause I have seen khushboo transforming from a shy girl to a confident woman, on behalf of all the Dreams Team of B2BLC we wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY , we all love you and we know no matter where you are you will do your best , keep growing for better life and better world.
Very special thanks to @Vanessa Attard , family and friends. Today, if people in Malta know about B2BLC is because of her and moreover, if today Khushboo know Charles & Ron is also because of her. Now, when Khushboo will go to Malta for 3 months Vanessa will take care of her, she has been one of the strongest Dream team. Special thanks to Sara Mampel cause she will go from Bombay to Barcelona to make sure Khushboo is ok.    
Thank you so much Vanessa , Charles & Ron and Sara.
Khushboo and I are because of you.
Amin Sheikh.

Hello everyone 
Good evening with big smile.
Let me share with u another magic Bombay to Barcelona connection story. Yesterday, Sylwia Królowie , a friend from Barcelona, posted on her FACEBOOK wall my website explaining how people can buy the book for Sant Jordi. In the middle of the night, around 1 o clock, one person from Bombay wrote me on my FACEBOOK, asking me how to get one of the book copies. Immediately I replied and told he could get it from me, so just an hour ago, 20 km from home, I went with my dream team Sara Cirera to give him the book. He received us in a very warm way, he was waiting for the book, and we started talking. He explained us that he saw a post of one of his friends on Facebook explaining about the book, and guess who is this friend, my dream team angel Sylwia. Is'nt it magic? He is from Mauritius, and met Sylwia in Ireland, and now, I met him in Bombay. Immediately I sent voice message to Sylwia she did not even know he was in Bombay. I have many magic stories in my life. What it make me feel is that this project is happening slowly but in a very magical way. Sometime I am very sad because I cannot make this project as I wanted, but I will make it according to my energy and time. This moment, right now, makes me feel strong and more stubborn to make Bombay to Barcelona Library Café real.
I believe everyone can bring one drop opportunity no matter who or where they are. Thanks to everyone, and specially now to Sylwia and Avinash now my book arriving to MAURITIUS ISLAND  AFRICA

Hello everyone,
Good evening with big smile. 
Today is a great Sunday with great news one after one. 
This afternoon I gave 100 Marathi books to Stanley Gonsalves ANGEL from VASAI (north Mumbai) who translated my book from English to Marathi. He asked me 100 books in Marathi to help me to sell them around Vasai
and now another good news to share with you all. 
I got an email and a call last week from ASSAM, in other side of india, fromAkash Chetry who is from an engineering college and has been also like an angel who asked me "Amin sir we will like to have you in our college to give a talk in the Annual Day". I was very surprised and moved by him and all his team. In less than a week I had my flight ticket from Mumbai to Assam booked on 17th March in the morning and back on 21st of March. This is a really great opportunity and it is the first time that I am going to another side of India and a big door opening to the dream café. I want to thanks to Akash Chetry and his TEAM and college to do this gift where I never been, they are bringing me to Assam, and also it has been one of my dreams in the list because I need to know about the tea to give the best quality in the dream café. I want to go there to know the tea farm and its people, and now I will know more than this green land and people. All of this is always important in life. 
I really thanks to ASSAM ENGINEERING COLLEGE to suport Bombay to Barcelona Library Cafe Amin Sheikh

Hello everyone,

Good morning with big smile on this beautiful Sunday. I have been waiting for some days to share these great news and big steps of this project.
Again, here, if these big steps are happening is because of my dreams team Ina Fölster from Germany and Soy Gracias a Ti from Madrid (Spain).
Google has accepted our project for the programme Google Ad Grants for NGO which supports NGOs via their Adwords scheme.
Google Ad Grants works just like Google AdWords online advertising, by displaying a message to people who are searching for nonprofits. We’ll receive $10,000 USD in in-kind AdWords advertising every month.
Without Ina Fölster this opportunity could not have been possible, whatever knowledge we have all is matter to use it for good reasons, as Ina did. Special thanks to Google because they accepted our project, and thanks to my Madrid team Soy Gracias a Ti, Elena Cuervo-Arango, Luisa Coque, Verònica Barceló Castelló Ines Calle and Mónica Gómez because they have been the middle point with Ina and Google providing all the official documents needed. Also special thanks to all INA'S friends, who have been advising and helping her to make this achievement possible.
Finally, I want to thanks to all of you for being supporting, please, keep on supporting until the end...

Bindia Hallauer from America to Bombay

Hello everyone,

Good evening with big smile.

Two hours ago I met Bindia Hallauer. She lives in America, but originally she is from Mumbai. It was very interesting to meet her, she has been a big support buying my books, and today it was the first time we met. We had a very positive conversation, and it was very nice of her because, as all of you already know, I have been in this project since three years ago and even it seems easy to start a library café, I am facing many many difficulties, so she has been following me by Facebook twitter, blog, and website, she knows very well all my journey with this project, and she insisted me not to stop giving this beautiful example: the man who wanted to invent the bulb to bring the light to the world had created about 10.000 failed bulbs and all people were laughing at him, however, he kept trying and trying without fail, and finally he succeeded. So thanks to him we have light around the world nowadays.

My dream is not much different from him, I am not lighting a bulb, but I want to light the lives of many others Amin like me. I know that many people are laughing at me, they think that the library café is an impossible dream, but I will keep trying because I have few beautiful people like Bindia angel who is standing by me, giving me the strength, and not only that, today she gave me a Rs 30,000 donation. Anyhow I will keep working for this dream to make it real. If I hadn’t started this dream café, I could never have met Bindia and all this beautiful people who is helping me day by day around the world. It is just a matter of time; I need to find the right place for Bombay to Barcelona Library Café.

Special thanks to Bindia angel, to making me not to give up the dream café, and also special thanks to all my angels who have been working and standing by me day and night. It is also for them that I don't want to stop moving, I don't want to disappoint all the trust given to me. Without trust nothing can be possible, and this trust you cannot buy by money. 

Good things always take time, and I need time to make this GOOD in reality.

Hello everyone, 

Good evening with big smile.

I want all of you know one Angel called INA FÖLSTER, she is very sweet, warm, kind, soft spoken, and she has been helping me during this last 22 days non stop. For me, she is and incredible person, let me explain you how I met her.

One of my friends gave her my contact because she was coming to Bombay, so I met Ina in MUMBAI to show her my Bombay city heart by a motorbike tour during some hours. After the tour, she came home to have diner because she was a friend of my friend and I wanted to make sure she would enjoy not only the Bombay city, so she met my family too. We had dinner in my home, and it was there where she bought my book and I left her. The next day I got a call from Ina by whatsapp explaining that she  had read the book on the way back home in the flight, and then she said: "Amin, I want to help you". I told her "please help us, we need help in many ways", and then she said "yes Amin, I will help you". Whatever knowledge I have I will use it to help you". 

Then here, after 20 days working day and night with non stop, she made this beautiful website: www.iambecauseofyou.com, it is better than before and I really thank her to conacted all my dream team in MUMBAI ,Spain (Madrid), and France and all her friends in London, to put the best of the best and make sure the website is alive, so then, I can reach more people in the world to make my dream cafe in real. 

These last 20 days she and my dream team have been working on the website day and night, we have been talking almost everyday by whatsapp call, skype, or email to make sure we have all we need for the website: all the information about the project, book, my story, press, etc. and it has been translated in different languages.

I would also like to thank to Sara Mampel, who has translated the website in Spanish and Catalan. She is my other big big angel, who has come to BOMBAY for one year to work for us. I am so proud of my beautiful team who has believed in me and has been standing by me with their kindness and knowledge.

Well, soon the website will be in French too, and not only that, soon people will be able to buy the Ebook and hard copy of my book on my website. These are really great great news for my dream cafe 
and me, without you all I could not reach this dream. Thank you is a very small word for all your time and kind help for this project 
Bombay to Barcelona Library Café.

Here we have done another big big step in 2016.

THANKS for  this BIG step by big heart ANGELS:  INA FÖLSTER,
