Behind every successful woman is a good book that inspired and motivated them, writes Elena Koshy
IN an age where the Internet rules along with short attention spans and communication is limited to 140-character Twitter updates, does anyone read books anymore? The forgotten past-time of reading opens a door to possibilities — that we can be more than we can imagine and accomplish so much more than we believe we can. It was Oprah Winfrey who said: “Books showed me there were possibilities in life, that there were actually people like me living in a world I could not only aspire to but attain. Reading gave me hope. For me, it was the open door.”
International Women’s Day may be over but there are never enough reasons to celebrate womanhood every day. We give a nod to some of our own phenomenal women who’ve made an indelible mark on our nation’s landscape and discover that the singular thread that binds all these amazing women from different backgrounds is a love of reading.
