Get Ready to Embark On A Literary Adventure: It's National Reading Day, Where Words Come To Play!

Prepare to celebrate National Reading Day with a splash of wit and a sprinkle of enchantment! Let's unlock the power of books and explore infinite worlds, because as George R.R. Martin once said, "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies... The man who never reads lives only one."

Reading contributes to one's knowledge expansion, as well as communication skills growth and overall development. This year's National Reading Day is on 19 June to raise awareness of the importance of reading books, even in a time when the internet rules the roost.

The day commemorates the passing of Puthuvayil Narayana Panicker on June 19, 1995, a notable figure in Kerala known as the "Father of the Library Movement." He supported many initiatives carried out by the Kerala Grandhashala Sangham, which instigated a widespread cultural movement in Kerala and led to the state's adoption of universal literacy in the 1990s.

The observance honours PN Panicker's efforts to change Indian society through his literacy drive. Sanadana Dharma Library, the epicentre of Kerala's library movement, was established by PN Panicker. The Kerala Association for Non-Formal Education and Development (KANFED), founded by Panicker, aimed to raise literacy rates and education awareness in rural areas.

The Ministry of Education in Kerala also conducts a reading week known as Vayana Varam from June 19 to 25 every year in addition to National Reading Day on the anniversary of his passing. 

Celebrate by reading a favourite book or giving a book to a friend or member of your family. Schools and colleges also observe the day by holding discussions, extemporaneous challenges, and reading contests. 

Along with these activities, the day can also be commemorated by sharing significant insights and peer group reading journey accounts.
