21 lessons for the 21st century @yuval_noah_harari This is THE most important book of this year. It discusses the most important problems of the planet and homo sapiens in the 21st century. In this book he discusses the possible dangers to the job market because of the technological revolution- Artificial intelligence, refugees and immigrants, terrorism, religion, climate change, excesses of ideologies like nationalism and Liberalism etc It is an in-depth analysis of the current world scenario. It is #mustread And because I’ve read the book and heard the audiobook simultaneously I recommend the audiobook strongly - the last chapter has an extra two minute in the audiobook version
Cobalt blue by Sachin kundalkar Translated from Marathi by Jerry Pinto A paying guest enters a household. Both, the son and the daughter of the house owners end up in two very varied relationship with him. The book is in two parts- one being Tanay’s lament addressed to the said paying guest and the other is in the form of Anuja’s diary entries. I have read this with a constant lump in my throat. Sole theme being the mystery of intense loves that don’t last. #mustread
Latitudes of Longing by @swarupshubhangi is the most beautifully written book I’ve read this year. It is a dream translated to text. It truly is. If you like magic realism - this book is what you need. I know I’ll come back to this book over and over again for the comfort of a dream. As much as it makes you feel the pangs of longing and solitude- it comforts you with its magic of fables. Latitudes of Longing is pathetic fallacy at its best. Nature, weather, landscapes assume a character of their own within the story - each sharing an intimate relationship with each character... Oh it’s so so so good !!! @swarupshubhangi
Gun Island by @amitav_ghosh1 is a very important book. It delves into themes that have found space only in non-fiction. It’s the story of Deen Dutta, a rare books dealer retracing the path of a character from Bengali folklore - the gun merchant. And this journey takes him from Sunderbans to Los Angeles and finally to Venice His journey throughout the book coincides with some sort of natural calamity... he is not chasing them. But the story establishes you can’t escape climate change in any part of the world. It descriptively sites the displacement happening on both sides of the border in Sunderbans in Bengal because of climate change. It talks of the forest fire in Los Angeles and the water level rising in Venice. Climate Migration is a topic not variedly talked about and needs much more attention that we giving it now Ghosh says ‘we understand our world through stories’ . With this story he explains we’re living in the dystopian world that we talked about in fiction 10-20 years ago. A world where everything is going wrong and we make a conscious choice to not see it but no matter how hard we try climate change is catching up
How to change your mind The new science of psychedelics By @michael.pollan This book discusses and puts into chronology the life of some of the most interesting and possibly the most powerful chemical compounds discovered and consumed by human beings From their respective origins in various ancient cultures - to them being used as a healing drug in clinical studies to fight mental disorders and addictions- to becoming the tool for creating a counter culture... and finally being revived in the field of medicine and science post 2006 Across this book Pollan discusses the journey of psilocybin, LSD, DMT and a lot of other psychellics - introducing some very interesting people who’ve dedicated their whole lives seeking answers to the ever-intriguing questions of consciousness I picked it up because it was listed among Yuval Noah Harari‘s favourite books from 2018 and I LOVED this book. I heard the audiobook and I read the text. I have thoroughly enjoyed it - because this book does not come from a place of judgement against psychedelics or from a place of baselessly celebrating them. Pollan throughout the book is seeking knowledge about these psychedelics and that’s what he delivers - the story of psychedelics from its discovery till now - the how, what, when, where, who - all of it Bohot bohot bohot interesting aur mazedaar kitaab !! #chaiaurkitaab #booksandtea #bookstagram #michaelpollan #howtochangeyourmind
