Releases Gilnavith Kath, The Graveyard Srinagar, July 9: Central University of Kashmir (CUK) Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdul Wahid Qureshi Monday expressed dismay and concern over the declining book reading habit among the younger generation. “The upcoming generation is least interested in reading books, which is a matter of grave concern,” Prof. Abdul Wahid said during the book release function held at the Transit Campus of the University at Sonwar here. Two books, Gilnavith Kath in Kashmiri, by noted writer, Mr. Ghulam Nabi Gowhar and The Graveyard by a teenage upcoming writer, Mr. Towfeeq Wani were released on the occasion.

Prof. Wahid called for revival of book reading habit and asked the youth not only to read books on different subjects and topics, but also try to write them. He said the books written on literature were reflection of the society. CUK VC hailed, both the writers, particularly, the class 12thstudent of Aligarh Muslim University and a resident of Baramulla, Mr. Toweeq Wani for his effort. Mr. Ghulam Nabi Gowhar while deliberating about his book said that his book deals with varied themes and has attempted to clear many misconceptions about Kashmir politics and literature.
