Dear Friends!!

My topic for the debate is

"Did any book create impact on you?"

Do you read books ?

Did any book change your life?

Did any book save you from problems?

Did any book help you in removing your confusions or did it add much more confusion?

or Do you say we read books but we don't take the content seriously?

Kindly put your views in your leisure.

with best wishes,

Mythili

Yes books to impact our minds...

The book that impacted me the most is 'Bhagawad Gita'..Both Lord Krishna and Arjuna impacted and continue to impact my life in a very positive way...I keep going back to Gita to seek solutions for a lot of situations...

I read a book recently that may not have changed my life, but certainly helped change the way I thought about certain things. It's "We need to talk about Kevin" by Lionel Shriver, and it really made me think about the so-called "blame culture" that we have as a society these days. A kid who massacres his fellow classmates is often stereotyped as "ill" or "ignored" or responidng to certain pressures in his/her life. But the child in this case did not come from a broken home, was not neglected and never bullied. Then why did he commit such an act? It made me wonder whether people can be born] evil. If it is circumstances that create evil acts, then how does Kevin's action justify that claim?

Even after putting the book down I couldn't get it out of my mind.
