There is a strange connection between homes and books. While books enrich us with knowledge, our home is the comfortable corner where we can always return. And when a home is filled with books, it’s nothing short of a heaven on earth. In our spare time, books are our best friends, giving us joy and enlightenment.
While books nurture our souls and make us feel extremely happy, the loving bond among family members keeps us together. It is a good habit to acquire and share our knowledge with our family members. The best example of such togetherness is seen when elderly people in joint families impart knowledge to the young ones. This practice creates stronger bonds and also helps develop communication skills between friends, society and even with our neighbours. So while we enrich ourselves with bookish knowledge, our mindset ought to be rich and evolved too.
Books also help us maintain a congenial atmosphere at home. Therefore, books and homes are very similar and at times, can be treated as two sides of the same coin. Inside our home, we look for peace, happiness, and while reading books, we seek knowledge and wisdom. Without both these elements, life would become boring and disgusting. Inculcate the habit of reading books and also share the gained knowledge with others.
