Reading exercises and advice, Is it for any better?
I was never a bookworm but I remember I read a big book of software engineering by Pressman in 7 days time, as it was necessary for my exams. I always used to study 10-15 days before start of the exam. I attended all the classes by the lecturers and then go through their notes and books before the exam, and if I guess, I used to get good marks too.
That was all about my book reading. People use to tell me to read the books, newspapers, journals, magazines, as they will increase my reading skills, GK, and English knowledge. I do not know.

My mother reads many books and she never leaves any puzzles or riddles unanswered. She always use to tell me “Monu”(she call me by that name), read newspaper daily, solve puzzles, watch news rather than movies, but all a waste. She was never able to understand that reading books are like giving a tedious task to my mind that is not at all a healthy competition.
Do we really need books to increase our GK? Is Gk important to survive on earth? Is reading necessary? I do not have answers.
Mothers, they all have the same concern for their children and their life. They want them to be APJ Abdul kalam, Dhirubhai Ambani, Narayan murthi and Bill gates. They never understand that their children are somewhere different; might be they want themselves to be like Kiran bedi, Sunil shetty, Matt cutts etc. (Sunil shetty aa…. Is it over?)
Mothers…; Mothers... I love my mother a lot and used to keep these newspapers and magazines in front of me to satisfy her. Now your question and understanding both are right. What do I do with the newspapers and magazines in front of me? I used to creatively read the cartoons like phantom and asterix( that were the ones that appear in the newspaper called Hithwada and Indian express) and find the creativity behind the cartoonist who pictured them.
I was grown and so did my character (people say different, they say "Abhilash"! mature boss…), ha ha… That was all about me but I would like to have some good opinions from the readers that could make my views strong or make me understand where I am wrong.
So yes, what do you think? Is reading a necessity and what do you think we lack due to insufficient reading skills?
To be clearer, what do the youth miss due to lack of reading?
