As Rancho–Amir Khan’s character in the movie 3 Idiots–defines books in a bookish manner, “Instrument that record, analyze, summarize, organize, debate and explain information and are illustrative, non-illustrative, hardbound, paperback, jacketed, non-jacketed, with forward, introduction, table of contents, index; that are intended for the enlightenment, understanding, enrichment, enhancement, and education of the human brain through sensory route of vision – sometimes touch,” we realize the pun-intended sarcasm that such a mechanical definition cannot truly reveal the reality of what timelessly transcendental invention books are.
People might say that in this digital world, printed books are losing their charm. But books were never for unwise readers. Neither they were for those who never needed them. They were, are, and will always be there for those seeking knowledge, understanding, learning, education, and wisdom.
These silently glittering stars are the entire human existence’s treasure trove. It is because of them that we are priding ourselves as a learned civilization. Today, like many other things they have gone digital and become eBooks, yet they will keep turning wizards out of homo sapiens. Ever since Rinku Chakraborty learned his first letter from the book bought for him by his (Late) father Kamal Chakraborty, he wished to be a book wizard. Encouraged by his mom Tapati Chakraborty, he fulfilled his lifelong dream by establishing Tapati Publishers on Tamer Lane, Collage Street, Kolkata, West Bengal.
