Encouraging reading for pleasure

It gives me pain to see that the habit of reading has been declining among our younger generation. While technology is steadily taking control over individual lives, we must find a way to encourage our children to read. Books are also costly, which is a contributing factor to the situation. Some parents discourage children from reading for pleasure and force them to read textbooks only.

The overuse of technology should be discouraged. The government should set up at least one library in every village. Students should be encouraged to read books besides textbooks by teachers at school, college and university levels and by parents.
