A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

Tuesday, February 28, 2012


Book Exhibitions are always an important itinerary in my life. These are annual rituals in my hometown Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, India every year.

Over the years, some great books have changed the trajectory of my life, more aptly I could say my life's perception. It is immaterial whether you purchase a book or not, but a visit to Book Exhibition will definitely give a gusto to the soul.

When I visit Book Fairs, I felt that I am in pilgrimage. I suck enough enthusiasm by seeing throngs of book-lovers. While I see the books in the stalls, I look them not as inanimate objects, but as living entities.

However the thin attendance of people in my recent visit to Delhi Book Fair reminds me of people’s increasing dependence on gadgetry. In spite of electronic books ruling the market, they could never substitute a hard book.

Huge respect outpours from my heart when I take gaze of wonderful collection of books in my personal library. When I gaze at them, I feel as if I am looking the Masters who silently inspire me even before I peep into their books.

My relationship with books is eternal. They are my friends, companions, philosophers and advisers. In short my craving for a good book is self-driven !!
