“The opposition’s fear of failure if the ruling front  does anything good cause limitations to democracy. Hence, it takes time to implement good projects here. Meanwhile, democracy is the best way of governance existing in the world in which people enjoy more freedom,” said Shashi Tharoor, Minister of State for Human Resource Development (HRD), here on Sunday.

He was answering the questions of children at the concluding meeting of the book festival organised by the Kerala State Institute of Children’s Literature at Kanakakkunnu. Tharoor advised the youngsters to get into general reading than confining themselves to the textbooks suggested in the curriculum.

K Muraleedharan MLA, who presided over the function, said that children should be given an opportunity to study history and the book festival helps a good deal towards this.

Palode Ravi MLA, former MLA Saratchandra Prasad, K Sreekumar, Balu Kiriyath and M Chandraprakash were also present. Kerala State Institute of Children’s Literature director Nedumudi Harikumar welcomed the gathering and convenor of the festival Radhika Devi T R proposed the vote of thanks.

The ten-day book exhibition and cultural fest was organised by the Institute in association with Grand Kerala Shopping Festival.
