The statement is true but only partially. Electronic media has made its presence felt in a big way. Today, all the information, that was earlier sourced by encyclopaedia, is available at the touch of a button on the electronic media. The visual effect is even better when we watch video pictures than those in the books. Moreover, it saves paper and there is a lesser impact on the environment in the form of carbon footprints. Nevertheless, despite the conveniences offered by electronic media, it cannot replace printed books. Our paper books have their own special charm and will continue to exist with whatever newer option that may be available. Books are written information that guides us on the correct path. They are our real friends. They don’t harm us in any way. But we can’t rely totally on electronic media as they certainly have bad effects. It misleads our new generation, they spoil their eyes, time and energy. Moreover, it relies on electric power.
