Books as Social Catalyst

“the role of books as a catalyst to effect social transformation…

…books can be tools of reconciliation in times of conflict and help build permanent peace and mutual understanding. The spread of a literary culture … can extend the message of humanism among the masses and also promote positive thoughts.

…organizing book fairs at the block level and village level, particularly in areas where reading habit was non-existent. Such a move would help bring about much needed positive developments to the underprivileged sections.

… literary pursuits … the need to have a balance between freedom of expression and social responsibility … literature should not undermine amity and understanding among people.”
