Message to students Make books your friends. You will never feel lonely or get bored.

Just as balanced diet is important for your physical well being, a balanced reading is important for your mental growth. But remember Frances Bacon’s words,

SOME BOOKS ARE TO BE TASTED, OTHERS TO BE SWALLOWED.AND SOME FEW TO BE CHEWED AND DIGESTED.
