The reading pattern of Kashmir youth have taken a dive in the recent years which experts admit is going to have a negative effect in their prolific tendency and scientific wisdom. Long before some unknown intelligent has said that “books are the greatest darling of man”. Normally reading books always help in cram the humor and is designed the best way of boost the schooling among students. On the other hand, the fashion of book reading among students is dying out in valley. Many parents and educational examiners feel that there are several circumstances which have determined mass of young perceptions and is blocking them from ensuing books other than their syllabus related ones.
This deteriorating trend is mainly due to credence of students more on bathetic material available in market, consider many parents and teachers. With the booming number of private educational coaching centers in the valley, students do not consume time in reading books while preparing for exams. Huge number of parent’s dibs that the study material offered by private coaching centers and less detailed books available in market has handicapped the minds of many students. Due to this trend, they are not ready to spend time in reading books and swell their circle of ability.
Educational investigators added two more factors in declining of reading culture among students. They attack the latest communication gadgets-internet and electronic media for it. Today a large portion of Kashmiri students depend on internet for their study material. They feel it less time consuming and much cheaper than the books available in the market.
Majority of youngsters today are trying to comfort their minds by the titillating content thrown at them by media. They prefer to utilize their time in watching the sort of media content than spending time in reading books.
I think there is a difference between a book and an e-book. Similarly reading a book and listening to a book are also two different activities.

The interpretations may be different. Everyone’s understanding is an addition to our perception and knowledge. So welcomes everyone’s views. Happy reading! Thanks and regards for sharing.
