The importance of books in life

The modern age is the age of technology. Today we work in any field but without any technical equipment we cannot complete any work properly and on time. We have internet facility for information on any area or any subject. Today's new generation spends most of its time on social sites like Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram etc. Gone are the days when every educated person kept a separate library for books at home. Books are a great source of knowledge. What we read from a book, we remember for a lifetime. If we forget somewhere, we immediately open the book and read it again and remembered it again.

There are many benefits to reading books. The biggest benefit of reading books is that it makes us mentally strong. When the brain is in motion, it strengthens the nerves of the brain. Reading books keeps the mind in the right place and also keeps the memory. Every book gives us something to learn. When we read a book, it reveals many new things to us, which enrich our knowledge. With this you can achieve something that is not in the hands of many. A person can take your property from you but not the knowledge obtained from books. The more books we read, the more our knowledge of the words in the language of that book will increase, with which we will be able to master that language. Knowledge of this language will give you skills and encouragement in your profession.

When you read a book, you are in another world. If your life is full of troubles, sorrows, etc., you should make a firm friendship with books. When you read a book and imagine a scene in your mind, it develops your memory. When you read a mysterious novel or story and are able to solve that mysterious event, you are developing your comparative and critical point of view in the right words. This developed approach helps you a lot in getting rid of your problems. By reading a book, you also learn to focus your mind on a subject. Social sites like WhatsApp, Facebook etc., have divided the thinking power of a person, due to which he cannot form a correct view on any one subject in the right way. If you read a book, you focus your mind on the story that is written in that book. The habit of reading a book for 15 to 20 minutes in the morning can help you focus on your office work. So you can try this experiment on yourself, you will definitely succeed.

The habit of reading a book can also make you a good writer. By reading a book you can write your new ideas in the form of a book and the work done in this way can make you a good writer. Reading books also improves your writing skills. We are ambivalent about many things. We do not have accurate knowledge of any subject. Reading a book on that subject gives us peace of mind. Spiritual peace is a basic human need. Books are a great way to relieve stress. In this age of internet, although we have modern means of knowledge, the importance of books cannot be denied. This great treasure needs to be preserved.

Exams under subjudice

Here I would like to bring to everyone's notice to a matter concerning recruitment processes which have come under sub-judice. We have seen that the recruitment process for the posts of Assistant Conservator of Forests, Assistant Inspector of schools and now lecturer in various polytechnics were advertised way back in 2018 and 2017, but due to legal litigations the recruitment processes have been stalled. Here what I fail to understand is the duration of time these cases have been pending without a single hearing. It has been almost three years since the advertisement has been published and two-and-a-half years since the case has been registered but with no progress at all, neither in the recruitment process nor in the court case. It is really very detrimental and demoralizing for the aspirants who have applied for these posts. Also this type of lengthy litigation makes the whole process of recruitment totally meaningless. In these types of matters, either the case should be disposed of within a stipulated time duration (like 6 months) or a notification cancelling the whole process should be published so that the aspirants are not left hanging in the dark.

People must follow COVID-19 safeguards

Madhya Pradesh has launched the 'Roko Toko' campaign to stop and admonish people not wearing masks in public places as COVID-19 infection again spreads throughout the State. An amount of over Rs. 1.34 crore has been collected in Madhya Pradesh's Jabalpur district alone in fine slapped on people violating the COVID-19 protocols under this campaign. Many States have also been mulling to impose restrictions to break off the spike rate of COVID-19. A lot of people are not following COVID-19 safeguards and even join wedding functions, markets, and public gatherings freely like normal days. Today, only taking preventive measures is the way to deal with COVID-19. The need of the hour is that people must follow COVID-19 safeguards and save the lives of all.
