Srinagar: A five-day book fair was inaugurated at RP School, Nagbal by ADDC Ganderbal, Mushtaq Ahmad, and SP Ganderbal, Feroz Yahya. In a statement issued here, the organisers of the book fair said hundreds of students from different schools and districts thronged the fair.

They said that the book fair aimed at developing a reading culture in Kashmir.

The statement quoted Principal RP School, Nagbal, Muzzafar Ahmad as saying, “The pandemic has created a lot of learning gaps amongst the students and increased the screen time alarmingly. This book fair was organised to mitigate these learning gaps while also building a resilient system that can withstand future learning crises.”

The statement said that the book fair comprised more than 2000 books from different genres. “Reading corners, story-telling sessions, and vocabulary building activities were organised to generate interest of the students in reading,” the statement said. “Year Advisor, RP School, Nagbal, Najm-u-Saher insisted that such steps should be taken by the schools as reading not only improves vocabulary but also the ability to empathise.”
