India is one of the world's leading countries in terms of daily time spent on reading books. This is all the more reason why this kind of a revolution was needed. I believe that this platform will be a meeting place of likeminded readers to get exposure to the best reading choices as per their tastes. I sincerely believe that knowledge in the right hands can be powerful.”
