Pratheek Praveen Kumar
Great friends indeed are books,
For good people or crooks,
Great companions at any time,
They put up when one cries and whines.
Knowledge they give us certainly,
They make us feel free,
And allow us to become better,
Because they our dogmas do shatter.
Enjoyment they us supply,
They never do lie,
And allow us to enrich ourselves,
They thus do us bless.
People have gained through books,
In everything from brain to looks,
And have never regretted reading one,
As this entails a lot of fun.
From olden times have books been read,
And high standards have they set,
They have become the medium of spread of knowledge,
They into us knowledge wedge.
The best friends of man indeed are books,
It gives a man due to his knowledge looks,
The greatest people were great book-readers,
Books are indeed the greatest mind-feeders.
Books are the cause of the survival of a race,
Of survival and development they are the base,
Certainly, they will decide the fate of people,
Either they will live or their life will be supple.
People have read books and have become the best,
However, not reading is just a great and avoidable waste,
One must read and read all his short life,
That will make him happy throughout his short life.
Indeed, great is the practice of reading each day,
Happy and joyful his life certainly may.
