Read for Happiness

The theme for National Reading week 2014 was titled as “Read for Happiness” to commemorate the 60th birth anniversary of the fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singey Wangchuk.  As a symbol of repaying fervent love, appreciation and patriotism towards of our beloved fourth monarch, the speech reincarnation Zhabdrung Ngwang Namgyal and the direct descendent of Terton Pema Lingpa(The revealer of lost religious treasure of Guru Rinpoche), we have walked another miles of step in celebrating the 60th birth anniversary of our beloved fourth king.

Secondly we have organized the 2014 National reading week in an anomalous way to create advocacy on importance of reading among our youths and to in calculate good reading habits in our future generations. As Gandhi said, “live as if you were to die tomorrow and learn as if you were to live forever”, we must never hesitate to read and learn to burgeon the knowledge and to know what is happening around us. Books are the only indispensable windows through which we can see the panoramic view of the world. They are the pre-requisites beacon of brain as foods are the incredible beacons of health.   

Internationally Bhutanese people are regarded as poor readers as many Bhutanese never reads. And to uninstall such unkempt thoughts from our young minds, it is the sole duty of every educators and parents to convince and amend them as better readers so that they become compatible globally. Our young minds are innocent, open, clean and empty, ready to grasp anything that comes on the way. It has an ability to capture beyond what has been captured by the brain of Elbert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton. It has also a tremendous power to create social harmony beyond what has been created by Gandhi of India and Nelson Mandela of South Africa.

  4. Reading is very important. This should always remain undeniable in the mind of everybody. And sooner one starts reading better will for himself/herself. It's good that your school is conducting the reading session to instill this in those young minds. Great. Make them feel the cream of reading so that they won't regret later just like me. All the best in every endeavor your school and teachers put in this......
