Books—Our Best Friend
It is very difficult for us to live in isolation. Our human friends, relatives and companions can prove unreliable and treacherous. They can harm our interests. However, books are our real companions, friends and guides. They enrich humanity. They are a store house of knowledge. They have educative as well as informative value and importance. Let us live in the company of books. They will never betray or deceive us. We can look towards them for guidance, learning and entertainment. Shakespeare’s dreams have a universal appeal. Homer, Balmiki, Ved Vyas have given us immortal works. ‘The Ramayana’ and ‘The Mahabharat’ are read by millions of people. Keats’ poems are things of beauty that give joy forever. Tagore’s ‘Gitanjali’ transport us to a spiritual world. Prem Chand’s ‘Godan’ unfolds rustic life and its problems.
Books are our best companions. If you are alone, you can take up book of your choice and taste and very soon you become a part of it. Books on travels and adventures are not informative but also quite exciting. The biographies of great men like Lincoln and Gandhi can be a source of inspiration. It is never too late to enter the world of books. The sooner you enter, the better it is.
