Book Reading Club
The book reading club has no boundaries. It has a clear aim: to move beyond the prescribed syllabi. The club offers a platform and opportunity to not just discuss Books, but to exchange ideas and much more. The objective is to open up as many windows of imagination possible for a student. It seeks to address the problem of reading being confined to a prescription. Readers at the club however, have the liberty to pick up any book to discuss it. This fits into the larger scheme of education, which should be a liberating experience, not a confining and constraining one. The only prescription at the book reading club is to read the book, be it a classic or a contemporary one. It could be on zoology or globalization, ancient Indian art or development studies, fourteenth century Persian poetry or the latest developments in the world of science. There are no barriers at all.
