    Reading helps to develop our minds as well as helps to increase our knowledge. Reyaz says: “Books are good companions. I try to take advantage and read several books such as biographies of successful people, books which encourage self-improvement, novels, and success stories.  “To make the most of my time, I also spend time with other family members during the day. I play a lot of games with them during the day, such as the game of chess, which plays an important role in strengthening the mind.” He says: “We also watch entertainment live shows, movies, short documentaries, and other educational programs through television and the internet.”
