READ can be said to be an acronym for ‘Ready to Enrich, Achieve & Discover’. Readers see many worlds through pages they read and enjoy many lives. They dream with their eyes open and they travel to strange lands in the comforts of their homes, study rooms, sofas and beds.
Readers Club at Tirpude Institute of Management Education (TIME) is a club that represents students’ pure and simple love for reading. Any student of TIME who loves reading can join this Readers club. He/She just needs to register his/her name at the Library with their phone numbers.
