“A capacity and taste for reading gives access to whatever has already been discovered by others”- Abraham Lincoln
As English is a universal language, interaction is essential for those who aspire to grow proficiently in the competitive world. Communication skills are playing a vital role in these days amongst the extraordinary enrichments in science and technology. Especially for engineering students, it acts like a prerequisite as they are accountable for the uninterrupted growth and innovation of a society and nation at large, theoretically. Even though the principal tasks accomplished by engineers are methodical in nature and their success depends particularly on the efficiency with which they adopt. Therefore an engineer should be an incomparable in both reading and writing skills. Reading is very much important because an engineer has to read and comprehend a variety of texts – it may be a short e-mail, a book or an extensive report. One who acquires skill in reading automatically becomes a creative writer. Similarly the objective of any professional writing is to communicate the ideas with the right usage of words in factual context.
