Importance of Books

No amount of slogans, tweets, greeting card industry products, SMSs, news bytes can bite into the space of books.

Meme-literate milliennials, WhatsApp warriors, Facebook frontiers, Social media superficiality specialists, MSM (Mani stream media) mafia of manipulators of mass opinions, sensationalism seeking reporters, anchor room arm chair specialists to all of you greetings on  World Book and Reading day.

In future, value the importance reading books, now easily available at a click of a mouse before manufacturing justifications for your conclusions.

Be tolerant and have sense of humour too with ‘u’after ‘o’.

BOOKS are the greatest gift to human race.

Excess of catchy short slogans, abbreviated aphorisms serving the greeting card industry and sermons spicing self –help book messiahs are all compact but not necessarily complete or comprehensive.

Serious reading, review and researches have to be substantial and hence necessarily lengthy, lingering and lasting.

The reason being anything that attempts to weave a serious relationship has to necessarily not merely stop at appealing and convincing but go beyond that and cull out and convey the synergies among a hoard of things, facts, perceptions, ideologies, personalities, characteristics, ideas, issues, problems, actions, thoughts, reactions, opinions, attitudes, concepts, prevailing contexts, demands of diplomacy, perspectives, reactions and so and all these to be embellished by the beauty of language, aesthetics of style of the author etc.

Therefore, no amount of slogans, greetings, tweets, SMSs, news bytes can bite into the space of books and serious reading.

So long live serious lengthy write ups and good books.

A person, who can write a long letter with ease, cannot write ill. ~ Jane Austen

A person who reads lives more than one life, but that means that they die more than once as well. ~ Deanna Vasquez

All the secrets of the world are contained in books. Read at your own risk. ― Lemony Snicket

"In books I have traveled, not only to other worlds, but into my own. I learned who I was" - Anna Quindlen, How Reading Changed My Life

A piece of writing has to seduce the reader, it has to suspend disbelief and earn the reader's trust. ~ Po Bronson

A perfectly healthy sentence, it is true, is extremely rare. For the most part we miss the hue and fragrance of the thought. ~ Thoreau
