I'm so thankful to my parents for introducing me to reading. It's one habit that accompanies anyone, anytime, provided that person has an inclination towards reading.
I think i've been reading since early childhood. I don't know how it gets one interested. Does bed-time story-telling impact us?
The reading habit has been a companion during journeys... while waiting for a bus... during the wait at the diagnostic centre....at dinner.... when watching tv.... in class, sitting in the first bench.... in the library at college. I seriously don't know what i would have done, if not for this ritual of mine.
I used to visit this particular library, in my childhood. Father, M and i used to go there, once in a fortnight. Savouring different books, at one go. At a loss, finding it tough to choose a particular title, or a specific author.
Now, i'm exploring, trying different authors or varied subjects. It appears difficult. And fortunately, i've not regretted my decision.
Childhood, is one instance when, habits are usually formed. One habit that can and should be inculcated is that of reading. A learning process, it teaches a child so much, to be humble, tolerant, cheerful, friendly...
