KOCHI:
“The visual revolution never represented the soul of the spectator where as the complete presence of the reader is needed while reading a book’’, said famous poet and critic Kalpatta Narayanan.

He was delivering the keynote address at the inaugural function of the 4 th edition of International Book Fair and Cultural Fest organized by CUSAT Library. “In the near future when artificial intelligence develops into full swing human intelligence will be worthless in many professions. To overcome the situation men have to achieve creativity to win against the machines. Only profound reading can enable one for this”, he added.

“Philosophy and literature should be included in all the branches of education as it purifies a mere individual to a more humane individual. The identity of being a reader is more worthy than that of a writer and the process of reading needs our potential and imaginative power”, Narayanan said.

Vice Chancellor Dr K.N. Madhusoodanan inaugurated the programme at a function which was presided by Registrar Dr K. Ajitha. Dr Shibu Ray S, Anil Radhakrishnan (Co- ordinators) and Sobin Shaji, Chairman, University Union spoke.
Uruguayan movie ‘A Twelve Year Night’ was screened in connection with the festival. A cultural fest showcasing the cultural performances of students and staff of CUSAT will be held on 15 th November at 5 pm. Public entry will be allowed. The Book Fair will conclude on 16 th November.
