(OZONE), Trichy had organized World Book Day on 23rd April 2013. On this occasion a workshop for writers had been arranged for quality writing and authoring books. The Chairman of South Zone Board of Continuing Education, K.Govindaraju who presided over the inaugural session of this writers workshop on the occasion of World Book day mentioned “Books are both object and idea. Tangible in form, intangible in content, they express the mind of an author and find meaning in the imagination of readers. Reading is this private conversation, but books are all about sharing experience, knowledge and understanding. This is the wealth we celebrate on World Book Day. Books are the most powerful forms of dialogue between individuals, within communities, between generations and with other societies. This unique means of dialogue must be protected. The technology of books is old, but it remains cutting-edge, functional and in some conditions irreplaceable”. K.Govindaraju further said, “It was a choice for UNESCO's General Conference, held in Paris in 1995, to pay a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading and gain a renewed respect for the irreplaceable contributions of those who have furthered the social and cultural progress of humanity. World Book Day is celebrated on the 23rd of April all across the globe to promote the love for books ”.Noted writer V.Jawahar Arumugam delivered the key note address and gave tips to writers for quality writing and said, “Writing well is more important than ever. It is also a primary means for documenting, communicating, and refining our ideas. Writing doesn’t just communicate ideas; it generates them. It is only by writing, not dreaming about it, that we develop our own style. Find a subject you care about and which you in your heart feel others should care about. Treat writing as a job. Be disciplined. Be without fear. This is impossible, but let the small fears drive your rewriting and set aside the large ones until they behave – then use them, maybe even write them. I believe myself that a good writer doesn’t really need to be told anything except to keep at it. Just think of the work you’ve set yourself to do, and do it as well as you can. The way to write a book is to actually write a book.The most basic skills one needs to become a writer is a practical knowledge of one's language and the ability to express one's self effectively to one's target audience. Some have a natural talent for effective communication, while others have to prepare well in order to convey their ideas effectively. However, in order to become a successful writer regular practice is needed. A writer should be an effective that takes education. You must educate yourself on the stylistic qualities of any genre as well as the expectations and intellect of target audience. This can be achieved through either formal or independent study; however, the necessity of this knowledge is absolute. What makes great writers great is their reading habits, insight, and most of all, their dedication to the craft. Simply put, real writers write. Furthermore, good writers are avid readers. Reading often helps you to understand grammar, style, dialect, and other aspects of literature more intuitively. You also become more aware of which writing techniques are effective and which are not by simply reading the writing of others. Good writers, as any other artists or professionals, immerse themselves in their craft, both in study and practice.”. The Managing Director of Moon Satellite TV, L.Shanawas Khan released the book “Aaravathu Arivu” authored by V.Jawahar Arumugam and gave special address on this occasion.
