Soaring on the carriage of imaginations steered with wings of reality…Galloping us away from the purgatories of life, and sometimes imperilling us with the hardships of emotional gamut, our oldest and BFF (best friend forever, just in case you don’t have your dictionary on millennial slangs handy 😉 …they are The Books and our eternal love for them.
We have one life, but with these storehouses of knowledge, the allusions to literature and to life and with their endless yarns of fantasy we live a new one, with every good read.
It’s an exploration without crossing the ranges, going to adventures without having us risk our life and solving treasure mysteries swivelling right in our living room rockers. They engross us to the extent of enduring the risks, sorrows, entrapments while touching happiness, romance & freedom in others with the empowering words making us live each story and every character.
When fiction becomes reality and reality liven these paper leaves, they make an essay, an edition, a fiction, a novel, a manual…A BOOK!!
What will be a world without books, devoid of our epics & legends, missing our virtues coming down through the lineage of cultures & traditions, and our insights to our ancestral life. They are the world, our guides to life and civilisation – everything comes from them, reflections, knowledge and our get-away fantasy worlds. Without a doubt, a world deprived of books can be nothing but totally barbaric…isn’t it ?
Books are the dare to dream & the dream fillers and being amidst them, is an eventful world within reach. You feel like an explorer one day and a dreamer on second….that’s the magic spread by books and how mystical it can get when its a house full of art, histories & mysteries, literature & ancient artefacts, fables & science fictions.
For book lovers it’s the best playground, the playwright of feelings, thoughts, emotions and imaginations.
By forming the source of our evolving thoughts and opening up closed mindsets, they are the lanterns to a good man, always torching out the path of wisdom and righteousness.
So, let’s have it straight from our young babbling (many) horses’ mouth 😉 with their experiences captured in these few lines and how can we forget their inspiration..their wondrous library teacher.
As we all know books are our best friend in life. They share our emotions like sorrow, happiness and joy with us. As books play an important role in an individual’s life, it has the power of fulfilling one’s knowledge with entire world. So, my experience as a librarian has been wonderful. I felt a huge change in myself, I started loving reading various novels & exchanging thoughts among children. In these years, I have observed a change in my thoughts and it continues with each day, and this was the lightening path showed by the grace of books.
Every day I try to imbibe the same respect for books through the lens of my acquired and ongoing journey towards the ocean of knowledge. Guiding Samsarians through this journey so they can evolve and carve out their worlds, with better sanity and foresight for humanity and for the assets of this planet, reads a long chapter of my life voyage.

The story I’d read was very good. There is a sea monster who ride motorcycles and it talked about races also. Overall the book was very interesting.

A.J., the child in the book hates going to school but I feel it’s wrong, we should go to school regularly.

Vampires don’t wear polka dots- In this book, a teacher loses it because of naughty troublesome students, so reading this one makes it more interesting. Also, there’s a dare too!

My true friends are my books as they remain forever.

I like Thursdays very much because on this day there is Library period. I feel so quiet and peaceful while in the library and so, I try to read as many books possible, especially Noddy.
How not to babysit your brother- In this book the boy loves to play video games. And he enjoys them more when his mom is out for shopping.

I love this place ‘Library’ just because it is the ‘Home of Books’.
I love to go to library because I have so much interest in books. It’s always a pleasure for me to read and study in silence.
Manisha Bhati | Class VI
I simply like to read because books are exciting.
