National Reading Day: History, significance, and other details
National Reading Day: Every year the nation observes the day to mark the death anniversary of PN Panicker. A revolutionary in the world of education, Panicker is famously known as ‘The Father of the Library Movement in India’.
It is often said that ‘Books are the window to the world’ and people who are constantly reading can't agree with the adage anymore. Reading not only enhances one's knowledge but helps in improving communication skills and inculcates holistic development. To remind people about the value of reading books even in an era dominated by the internet, National Reading Day is observed on 19 June this year.
