World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day is celebrated on April 23rd every year to promote reading, publishing and copyright. On the occasion of World Book Day 2020, ‘My Book My Friend’ campaign was launched by Hon’ble HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ to encourage students to keep reading books. In continuation to its efforts to promote reading habits among students and support the launch of ‘My Book My Friend’ campaign, KVS encourages its schools to be part of this campaign. The students may be encouraged to go beyond their textbooks and discover the joy of reading some other books of their interest available in their homes or on internet.
Books can be the best friends in the times we are in. Students sitting at home due to closure of schools may utilise their time by exploring the realm of good books. The power of books can be leveraged to combat isolation, cope with fears and anxieties. Reading of books will not only give new knowledge and ideas to the students but will also enhance their imagination, critical thinking, language skills, focus, memory and concentration.
Hon’ble HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ also asked the students to share the book they are reading and their views on social media with the hashtag ‘#MyBookMyFriend’.
I request all of you to join in this campaign and share your views on the books with the hashtag ‘#MyBookMyFriend’
