Reading can help you experience the joy of flying, the marvel of magic, the art of kissing and can take you to places, that you have never been to or could never even have imagined.The more you read, the better you learn to think, to imagine, to create, to speak, to write and to have insight.

Sharing the joy of reading with your parents

  • Your parents must have favourite books of their own; either books that they have read recently or books that they read when they were your age or younger. Talk to them and find out about the joy that reading has brought them. Ask your parents to:
  • Name their favourite book.
  • Write down other title(s) that they have read.
  • Say where the stories are set.
  • Write down the names of some of the main characters of the books.
  • Draw up a list of any THREE good characters (heroes) and any THREE bad characters (villains).
  • Write next to their names, what it is that makes them good or bad characters.

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
