Reading Induces Further Reading



As I shared with you all that I have been reading a lot these days. That’s why I find no time to write. However, today I have taken out some time to share something interesting about “reading” with you all. As the experiences vary from individual to individual, my experience about reading is totally mine; readers may hold opinion other than my experience. That’s totally fine with me.

I start with the assertion that “reading induces further reading”. It is just like a chain reaction, i.e. once it starts, it’s hard to control given the fact that you are not reading to pass or qualify any examination or write a written paper/test. Here, we are talking about the reading as a hobby, where an individual has a strong urge to read book of certain specific theme(s) or topic(s) of his or her interest.


Let us prove the assertion under the two conditions that emerge after you finish reading a book. The first condition is that you feel satisfied after you finish reading the book on a certain theme by a particular author. The second condition is that you do not feel satisfied after you finish reading the book on a certain theme by a particular author.   

Under the first condition, i.e. the state of satisfaction, you find the content in the book interesting and agree with the perspectives, ideas, discussions and data offered by the author. This proves that you have had good experience while you were reading that book. Given the condition that you have a strong urge, you will look forward for another dig at the ecstatic state of good experience that you gained while reading by either re-reading the same book after a break, or finding another book, by the same author or by a different author, on the same theme, to multiply your experience of joy (Just recall people saying that I have seen the movie Sholay or Titanic 20 times.). What happens here? Simple! A (good) reading induces further (good) reading.

Under the second condition, i.e. the state of dissatisfaction, you do not find the content of the book interesting; author’s ideas, discussions, perspectives, data etc., do not prove strong enough to influence you at all. However, since you have a strong urge to read something interesting, you will go to the nearest library or meet an expert and grab the copy of next available good book on the same theme and start reading it. This will happen due to the previous bad reading. So, what happens here? Simple! A (bad) reading induces a further (good) reading.

Thus, in both the conditions, reading induces further reading. It is just like kissing; if your first kiss is enjoyable, you will go for the second, and third, and fourth, and n number kisses in order to enjoy the kissing, and if your first kiss is not enjoyable, you will still try kissing the second, the third, the fourth and the nth number of times in order to perfect the art of performing an enjoyable kiss on the lips of your partner.

A pair of comfits

A  pair  of  comfits  (the  doctor  sandals)  is  just  a  pair  of  comfits.  It  walks  its  wearer  out  in  comfort.  Sometimes,  the  reason  for  which  it’s  bought  makes  it  special;  it  becomes  a  pair  of  uncommon  comfits.  
Hence,  the  incident  of  Mr.  Kapoor.  He  remembered  how  he  felt  that  the  pain  in  his  knees  had  reduced  since  he  started  using  the  pair  of  comfits.  It  was  a  new  pair  gifted  to  him  by  his  beloved  wife  on  his  last  birthday. 
Initially,  he  was  hesitant  to  buy  any  birthday  gift.  He  thought  that  exchanging  birthday  gifts  is  a  practice  among  kids,  teens  and  youth.  He  had  crossed  forty;  he  shouldn’t  be  into  all  this.  In  addition,  he  wished  for  a  non-pompous,  silent  birthday  that  can  be  celebrated  best  with  the  family  and  good  food.  But  his  wife  pursued  him  to  buy  something  for  daily  use  on  his  birthday.  She  reasoned  that  she  would  go  and  buy  som…

Why people exercise

Exercise helps to keep body fit, flexible, toned-up and agile. A fit and agile body adds around five or more years to an average person’s life. If one exercises, all physiological systems like respiratory, nervous, skeleton, endocrine, blood circulation, etc., function perfectly well. A regular schedule of exercise keeps the metabolism in control, helps to burn extra calories, provides extra power when the body gets tired and thus works towards self-assurance and self-motivation. One hardly complains of stress and depression, which are two most common factors that cause various ailments and diseases, and lead to slow death, these days. Exercise results in a fit and happy being. In this regard, exercise can be defined as any physical activity that adds to the beauty of a person and thus keeps him or her disease-free.
The roots of physical activities can be traced back to the ancient times. Back then, our ancestors were hunters and gatherers. For their livelihood and protecting themselve…
