The Voice Of A Book
Author: Anvesh Renigunta
I have been here for many centuries now. But the invention of the printing press in 1440 adorned me. Since then, I have been polymorphic. I am an entertainer for a kid, a motivator for a teenager, a source of enlightenment for an adult, a companion for an oldster. I have always helped you(humans) through your ups and downs with no ego, pride, negativity. I am like a one-way mirror between you and the world. So, when you see the world through me, I will show you who you are. When the world sees you through me, I will show the world what you are capable of. Hence the saying, " Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are".
I make your mind the servant of intellect, not the slave of the senses. I help an engineer build the world, an entrepreneur in making the world a better place, a lawyer in fighting for justice, and a historian to record the past. I may not walk but I make you walk your way to success. I may not fly, but I give you wings to fly you through the world of fantasy. I am your best friend who will never walk away from you.
I carry not only the words of wisdom but also the soul of an author. I introduce you to a new version of yourself. A mind needs me as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge. My qualities might make you feel that I am elusive but there are 130 million different versions of me. I do not want to be half explored because the half-knowledge is dangerous. Still, I wonder why you let me rot on a shelf rather than exploring me.
