I just came to know that in I2C communication, writing a single bit
requires reading the old value (whole byte),
modifying the result (i.e. set or clear the bit one is interested in)
and then write it back. So the above code writes
the enable bit without modifying the other bits in the
LTRF216A_MAIN_CTRL register. ( Thanks to Sebastian )

And you are right, we don't need to do a read here since we anyway want
all other bits of LTRF216A_MAIN_CTRL
to be 0.

Thanks,
