People read. People search. Reading and searching both help people to get information and knowledge.
Reading is like digging the well; well in advance. Searching is like digging the well; only when one is thirsty. Often you can’t depend on digging the well only when thirsty. Often there is no option but to dig the well only when the need arises.
In this dynamic world both are important. Reading helps you grow your mind. Searching basically gives information. Raju is more dependent on searching than on reading. He must understand searching is not a substitute of reading.
The challenge is to have enough wells prepared well in advance and also to know where exactly to dig the well (keywords) when one is thirsty.
You really need ‘Self Help Books’ when you start believing that reading them can really help you.
