Books bind different people. Distance breeds prejudices and misunderstandings. Books bring us in touch with different cultures, traditions, rites and rituals, creeds and customs. This inculcates a feeling of tolerance and harmony. Great books make us realise that ‘no men are foreign’. They give us knowledge and wisdom and shape and mould our minds. Other means of communication give us things in bits but books give us things in totality. Books bring about revolutions and make the earth worth living.
Many times when we feel sad and dejected, books console our dejected and troubled souls and dispel darkness and make way for brightness. Books are our never-failing friends. They give us physical, mental, aesthetic and spiritual pleasure. For example, `Geeta’ has the potential to fulfil all these functions. But cheap books corrupt us as well. They spread hatred, jealousy, and animosity. Books play a significant role in our existence. Books are our friends in true sense. “No complaints, No Demands” as it is known by all. They also give us ample of delight and a reader might get addicted to them. We get to learn a lot from them as well. They take us to a whole different planet of imagination and visualization.
WE READ BOOKS BECAUSE
We should develop a healthy habit of reading books and the books we read should bring some moral to us. We must select the books cautiously as these are capable of either developing or ruining our personality. Reading good books has many advantages and have a lot do to with our individuality. Bad books spoil our character and develop unhealthy habits in us. We should make children and youngsters to read good books as they are the future of the country. They should work upon the lessons they discover from such books. A good book is a ‘friend, a truth-seeker and a guide’.
IMPORTANCE OF BOOKS
Everyone needs a little pleasure in life every now and then. We can get delight from various things. Sports, games and movies are some to add entertainment in our lives. But according to me, reading books gives us the real pleasure of life. When we read a good book, we find ourselves in an imaginary world, a book which is written nicely and very briefly makes us feel that we are actually present in the scene mentioned there, we just forget ourselves. We do not remember the troubles and anxieties of the world. We are sent into a land of beauty, imagination and bliss. Hence, books are the starting place of the utmost pleasure in life.
Good books build up in us numerous qualities. A man of broad reading is a man of traditions. Books make our life happy. Only a genuine reader of good books knows what satisfaction he gets from reading books. Good books develop our standard of living and improve our ideologies. They tone up our logical taste and make our point of view broad. They soothe us when we feel low and depressed.
I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years. I will be talking to and interviewing around 1 lakh people in the coming 2021 and publish their interview regarding their opinion on glamourising Over Work.
