Governor launches Read India-Lead India campaign at Raj Bhavan

Hon’ble Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan on Monday exhorted the students to imbibe the habit of reading and writing from early age.

“Reading gives a comprehensive perspective on various issues and transforms you as a leader. Reading also gives an added advantage in the competitive world,” she said.

The Governor was launching the Read India-Lead India Campaign, organised by Raj Bhavan in association with the National Book Trust, New Delhi, at the Raj Bhavan’s Community Hall, here.

Reminiscing her student days, Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan said that her father had presented her with books of Swami Vivekananda and legendary Tamil poet Bharatiyar.

“Those books have inspired me a lot. They instilled the sense of confidence in me. I still keep that habit of reading at least for an hour a day. Every home must have a book room,” she added.

The Governor stated that reading of books helps one in gaining knowledge and added that knowledge can be used as a power to bring reforms in the society.

As part of the event, the Governor presented “Exam Warriors,” book penned by Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to all the students participated in the meeting.

Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan appreciated the efforts of the National Book Trust, New Delhi, in promoting the habit of book reading among the younger generation.

Senior functionaries of the National Book Trust, Raj Bhavan, and students in large numbers were present in the meeting.
