Why I am writing this Blog the reason is :

As a reader, I feel everyone cannot start the journey from the moon to the earth; like we all cannot be a singer or doctor or in any other profession simultaneously. But if we have the passion to read the books . . . we can live hundred to Thousand lives before we die. We can experience other people’s feelings in a certain situation also. Especially about me,  I read because I live; I live because I read. Each book I read brings me a new perspective and a new set of thoughts to consider.
