World Book Day, observed annually on 23 April, is a day dedicated to the promotion of reading, publishing and copyright around the world. Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit marks the day with a quote of Malala Yousafzai, world’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner from Pakistan.
It's a day that emphasises the importance of books as a means of transmitting knowledge and promoting literacy, as well as encouraging people to read more.
Madhuri, who is a goodwill ambassad of UNICEF, shared a quote from Pakistan's youngest Nobel laureate, Malala Yousafzai.
Malala, an activist and campaigner for education and women's rights, 25, delivered a speech at the United Nations in 2013, calling for worldwide access to education. Her quote, “Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world,” has become a rallying cry for those who believe that education is the key to a better world.
Madhuri Dixit, who is also an advocate for children's education and rights, shared the quote on her social media platforms to highlight the significance of World Book Day. She underscored the importance of reading, writing, and education in shaping children's future and ultimately creating a better world.
