Read Till You Breathe, or With Ignorance Will You Seetheadmin
‘The journey of a lifetime starts with the turning page of a book.’ In a world where reading was once considered to be the best therapy, it is now suffering a setback due to destructive sources of entertainment like mobile phones, computers and internet technology. In a world where it was considered as a hobby once is now rejected by children
Charles. W. Eliot said and I quote-‘Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and the wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.’
Apart from analytical skill and focus, books bestow knowledge which can never be stolen. Once gained, it remains till eternity. Looking through annals of past and present, it’s imperative that we understand that books are the best source of entertainment, knowledge, mental stimulation, stress reduction and tranquillity also.
However, books have become a source of dejection today as mobile phones and computers rule the hearts of the children and they are unable to understand their disadvantages. But a child should always remember- ‘Technology is the best source of information but the worst source of entertainment and here the difference arises, books are the best source of both information as well as entertainment.’
