ITANAGAR, Apr 22: The World Book Day which is observed every year on April 23 was celebrated today jointly by the Arunachal Pradesh Literacy Society (APLS) and Gellum Memorial High School, Chandranagar in a small yet impressive function at the latter’s premises.
Inauguration of a new library and presentation of 107 books to the school on behalf of the APLS by Y D Thongchi, the chief guest were highlights of the occasion. In his speech Thongchi appreciated the efforts for celebrating the World Book Day undertaken by Gellum Memorial High School for the greater interest of the student community. It will boost the spirit to inculcate the habit of reading among students, he said while explaining the significance of the day and the need of reading habit in a student’s life. “Books are essential in today's life and without reading them one cannot achieve unification of mind and soul and be successful in life. Development came in Arunachal Pradesh after opening schools and reading books,” Thongchi observed.
