Habit of book reading puts us to a high levelSince the introduction of mobile phones, the reading of books in us have reduced to a lot. Number of persons going to the libraries also come to a minimum level.
A surprising news I read in newspapers that an old man who was in the business of collecting old papers and iron materials by streets, now in the level of speaking by many in the city. One Mr. Murugesan of Madurai, now aged 74. studied only upto second standard, entered into the business of collecting newspapers, books, iron materials in his tender age due to family circumstances but having interest to study further. He started reading his collected books casually and got developed interest in books he collected books of all subjects and presently he have a stock of books in his house more than ten thousand. He offers books to the students, research persons and many. He do not demand no money for his giving of books but if they compel he accept the cash but bought old books for that money again for other's use.
On reading this news I remember the story of Abraham Lincoln who become a big shot by reading books.
