Drives to Inculcate the Reading Habit in Armed Forces Personnels.

Inculcating the Reading Habit in the Armed Forces Personnels. On June 11, 2009, I was invited as one of the three members of a panel in the drive conducted by the Armed Forces in the Ministry of Defence to inculcate reading habit in their personnels. The fifty odd participants consisted of a good cross sections of all ranks. We were asked to tell the participants on our books including highlights that the readers should know.

  1. This is indeed a very interesting move...Good work!!

  2. It is not easy to plant the reading habit in adults, unless it was inculcated into them at a very early age. Anyway, hope they can make some headway in this drive.

  3. The task of the reading habit should be given to the Education Corp (AJAR). Moreover....there's always a library in each unit. Probably, they need to have more quality materials, books for the soldiers' liking.
