It is very important for every educational institution to have a library full of books. If students spend at least two periods a week in the library in the presence of language teachers then the idea of Sahage on gold can be true. Different books from the library,  Magazines, dictionaries, encyclopedias, dissertations, dissertations, reference materials, etc. Literary interests are nurtured and nurtured. Establishment of Reading Corners in schools and proper use of Literary Corners for Children  Is the source
 Language teachers can play an important role in inculcating inclusive interests in the students. Literary understanding of the language teacher, fluent language teaching and interest in creating literature is a source of inspiration for all the students.  The details of structure, tendencies and literary chronology make it easy to connect the disciplines with the literary world if the poems in the language curriculum are woven into the melodious music  and the characters are created from the drama class.  Teaching in a dramatic way not only makes the text clear but also lays a solid foundation for inculcating literary habits in the children. The language teachers themselves are constantly engaged in the study and from time to time tell their students good books and magazines to read.  Power, motivate to read and issue necessary guidelines after getting feedback from students about the book read. Linking to dictionaries, great dictionaries and encyclopedias should be a language teacher’s initiative  Is
 In order to connect the students with literature, periodic book exhibitions, literary conventions, face-to-face meetings of eminent writers should be organized in the educational institutions to achieve the objective of literary awakening in a planned manner with language, literature and writers.  Celebrating special days, weeks, fortnights and months in a practical way is an effective tool to engage children with literature. Teachers should encourage students to use radio and TV.  Also.  By making great efforts to connect the students with the literature through the standard literary series of the University, the students get detailed information not only about the class of drama, monologue, nook drama, but also knowledge about various subjects, acting skills and drama-monologue reading.  And the interest in creation is also strong. Literary students have a strong grip on the language. The richness of words helps to read non-literary subjects in depth through their medium, while the spoken language is also more.  Deals with being sustainable, robust, effective and efficient
 Nowadays in every newspaper you can read many literary genres like story, mini story, novel, drama, monologue, song, ghazal, poem, poem, rhyme, satire, essay, article, sketch, travelogue excerpt, review, satire etc.  If students get in the habit of reading newspapers then they get acquainted with various literary forms and topics. The sole purpose of many literary magazines and book series is to create interest in the field of literature with various literary genres.  Is such literary journals can be helpful in terms of literary understanding for the youth. Standard works of students can also be sent for publication in various newspapers and magazines. Self-created works of students interested in writing.  / Good work can be done to increase enthusiasm by publishing in college magazines Morning meetings in schools are a powerful means of self-expression for talented literary thinking children.
 If students give gifts of books or dictionaries to each other, relatives and close ones on special occasions then a good literary atmosphere can be created. Undoubtedly in today’s age we are going through dynamic phase of information revolution computers, internet, laptops.  The youth are abusing many scientific gifts instead of using them. On the contrary, there are many softwares, websites and apps available which aim to satisfy the intellectual and artistic appetite of the consumers associated with literature, language and art. Teachers themselves are aware of such modern information-world and to make their students aware of its proper use, their typing can be strengthened by teaching typing according to the interest of the students.  The student’s mind becomes happy, there his empty pocket is filled with knowledge of the concerns of human society.

Elderly people playing cards in village places as well as talking about wisdom, women sitting together in the streets in the evening with tea and sharing stories with neighbors, Mandhihar sitting in the streets and parks  Dream creation, etc. has been the traditional form of communication of all social information  This develops social harmony and the quality of speaking one’s mind instinctively  With this, social messages and customs continued to pass from generation to generation without any book
Gradually, educated and intelligent people in the newspaper columns expressed their views and proved their mettle.  Instead of places, readers started coming and going quietly in libraries  With the advent of radio, people got a better chance to listen to songs and news at home instead of in musical arenas.  In the thriving places, the elderly who were just miserable from home started coming to spend their time.  A ghazal applies to such elders, “You are smiling so much, what a pity that you are hiding”.  It is only natural that when such a person is kindly asked about his condition, his eyes will be filled with more tears than the words coming out of his mouth.
The discovery of TV left family members without work in the afternoon and evening  Modern Punjabi and other linguistic songs of the youth brought entertainment to the point where in the race of fashion, the hearth of the house began to forget the youth.  It would not be an exaggeration to say whether there is flour in the barrel of the house or not, but if there is any deficiency in the gathering of young friends.  Family ties became more and more common and small families were divided into big families calling for a happy family.  It has been observed many times that the youth involved in drug addiction, beyond the control of the parents, forced the head of the family and the society to bow in shame.
Now is the time for social media like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, etc. There are many platforms through which the society is getting closer to each other.  Families living hundreds of thousands of miles away in the country and abroad seek peace without delay.  From children to adults, they present their art in the court of the people at no cost.  Web media is a radical change in electronic media  Pint and other media have also created their own web portals to reach out to as many people as possible.  Web media portals have refreshed the news and encouraged readers to find out what is going on.  In any corner of the world, any kind of political, economic, social news is in front of the world at any moment, just like parents say ‘just two minutes’ while feeding their children.  Baking News has replaced the latest news today  The second has already become a race to publish news in TV channels and web news portals.
With a smartphone in hand and the availability of the net, you look no less than a good reporter.  Post the good news of the society on social media, the best issue is made ‘top-trading’ within hours of using social media.  There are many examples of this, such as the helpless sitting at the railway station, Ranu Mandal’s speech on social media made him a star.  In Punjab, the young ‘Chief Minister’ was counted among the favorite faces overnight  The role of social media is important for corona awareness  Social media has also proved to be a boon to school children these days
There are two sides to every issue  But social media is a blessing in disguise  It should be easily used for the betterment of the society  It is not a social phenomenon to use it to spread rumors and defame anyone  Individuals, social organizations, departments, enterprises and governments are resorting to various videos, live broadcasts or digital posters through appropriate platforms to make their point.  Social media is playing an important role in keeping school students in touch with teachers in such difficult times.  Governments strive to communicate their policies from door to door to the citizens of the state at low cost.  Society should use social media to communicate its feelings in a very relaxed and harmonious way.

Reading can improve your life in several ways leading to better well-being and mental health, personal growth, and a boost in confidence. These benefits will carry over to your school work, career and social life.
If you haven’t read a book in years or think reading is for nerds, perhaps you should reconsider. The following are just a few of the benefits associated with reading and the reasons why you should read more.
Reading expands your vocabulary
The more you read, the more words you’ll be exposed to. Consistent exposure to new words, learning their meanings and seeing the context in which they’re used will increase your mental dictionary. You will have more words available to use and more ways to use them in conversation and in writing. This will improve your ability to communicate effectively, allowing you to better articulate your thoughts and more accurately express how you feel. Most writers would attest that reading makes them better at writing.
Reading stimulates your brain
Your brain needs to be kept active and engaged in order to stay healthy. Reading is great exercise for the mind. From a neurobiological standpoint, reading is more demanding on the brain than processing speech and images. Mental stimulation from reading will improve your memory and learning capacity, keep your mind sharp by slowing cognitive decline as you age, and strengthen your brain against disease like Alzheimer’s or dementia.
Reading improves your memory
Reading creates new memories. With each of these new memories, your brain forms new connections between neurons called synapses and strengthens existing ones. As you read you are memorizing and recalling words, ideas, names, relationships, and plots. You’re essentially training your brain to retain new information.
Reading makes you smarter
Reading makes you smarter, it’s that simple. In the paper What Reading Does for the Mind by Anne E. Cunningham and Keith E. Stanovich, reading was found to compensate for average cognitive ability by building vocabulary and expanding general knowledge. Development of intelligence is not dependent on cognitive ability alone, it’s only one variable.
Reading increases knowledge
Reading is one of the primary ways to acquire knowledge. The knowledge you gain is cumulative and grows exponentially. When you have a strong knowledge base, it’s easier to learn new things and solve new problems. Reading a wide range of books will help expand your general knowledge. Specific knowledge can be acquired by taking a deep-dive on a subject or topic. Filling your mind with new facts, new information, and new ideas will make you a better conversationalist as you’ll always have something interesting to talk about.
Reading strengthens focus and concentration
In order to comprehend and absorb what you’re reading, you need to focus 100% of your attention on the words on the page. When you’re fully immersed in a book, you’ll be able to tune out external distractions and concentrate on the material in front of you. A consistent reading habit will strengthen your attention span which will carry over to other aspects of your life.
Reading enhances analytical thinking skills
You can develop your analytical thinking skills over time by consistently reading more books. Reading stimulates your brain, allowing you to think in new ways. Being actively engaged in what you’re reading allows you to ask questions, view different perspectives, identify patterns and make connections. Compared to other forms of communication, reading allows you more time to think by pausing to comprehend, reflect and make note of new thoughts and ideas.
Reading relieves stress
A 2009 study has shown that reading is more effective at reducing stress than listening to music, going for a walk, having a cup of coffee or tea, or playing video games. Reading for only six minutes is enough to slow your heart rate, ease tension in your muscles and lower stress hormones like cortisol. “Losing yourself in a book is the ultimate relaxation” according to Dr. David Lewis, who conducted the study.
Reading improves your imagination
Reading a good novel can transport you to another place, another time or another world. You can escape reality and temporarily forget about what’s bothering you. Exercising your imagination will improve your ability to visualize these new worlds, characters and perspectives. Opening your mind to new ideas and new possibilities makes you more creative and more empathetic.
Reading helps you sleep better
The addition of reading to your bedtime ritual will reduce stress and train your brain to associate reading with sleep. This will make it easier to fall asleep and allow you to enter into a deeper sleep. TV, smartphone and tablet screens emit blue light which disrupts your internal clock and negatively impacts the quantity and quality of your sleep. Avoid reading on a screen at least an hour before bed and read a physical book instead.
