Books are treasures of knowledge: Omar

Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah on April 27 highlighted the importance of books as valuable treasures of history, culture, heritage and literature.

 “Books provide vast canvas of multi-pronged literary, introductory, informative, educative and learning material to a reader and enrich ones knowledge about multifaceted aspects of life, people, area and civilization”, he maintained. Addressing a function after releasing a book titled Ladakh-Travel-History-Culture authored by DIG Police, S D S Jamwal and TL Thasgspa here, Omar said that the particular book is more than a traveler’s guide or visitors advisory.

“It covers all aspects of life in Ladakh, its fauna, flora, geography, history and culture in a peculiar and artistic fashion.” Omar appreciated the authors and stressed on developing the interest of writing diaries and books by the officers in administration, describing it a sophisticated way of telling the true stories of people and the land they live on. The Chief Minister said that his government has flagged preservation and propagation of state’s rich culture and heritage as an important area.
