The Research Department of Commerce at St. Joseph's College Irinjalakuda observed Reading Day on June 19, 2023, in memory of PN Panicker, the father of the library movement in Kerala. Panicker dedicated his life to eradicating illiteracy and spread a simple yet powerful message: "Read and grow." Since his passing on June 19, 1995, National Reading Day has been celebrated annually in his honor.
Ms. Remya S, the head of the department, inaugurated the reading day and delivered a speech highlighting its significance.
Ritika T Vinayan, a student of 3rd DC BCom, emphasized the importance of Reading Day. She spoke of how reading enhances focus, memory, empathy, vocabulary, and communication skills. Furthermore, it can reduce stress by 68 percent, improve mental health, and contribute to a longer life. Reading also inspires students to explore new subjects, which in turn aids their success in work and relationships.
During the event, Betsia and Ann Marie, students of 2nd DC BCom shared the review of their favorite books.
Ann Marie reviewed Michelle Obama's autobiography, 'Becoming,' providing insights and reflections on the book's impact. Meanwhile, Betsia reviewed 'Rich Dad Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki, offering her perspective on the lessons learned from the book.
As part of the reading day, a makeshift library was set up with book contributions from students and teachers of the commerce department. Numerous students took advantage of the opportunity to read the available books.
