New Delhi, Aug. 12 (ANI): Former President A P J Abdul Kalam has said that reading 'quality books' would lead to a 'knowledge revolution' in India, and to facilitate that one should spend at least an hour daily for reading books.
Addressing a book festival organised by the 'Makkal Sindhanai Peravai' (People's Thinkers Forum) on Tuesday, he urged parents to start a mini library in every house so that the great habit of reading can be inculcated in children.
"Reading of books would reform a person and help him or her to lead a proper disciplined life," he said, adding that character building would happen by reading books.
"Books are my best companion and helps me a lot in developing himself to become a scientist. Book reading will help the society as a whole and instead of wasting their time, men and women, youth and children should spend at least an hour to read books daily," Kalam said. (ANI)
