Reading List
  • - Khaled Hosseini: A novel about the lives of two girls in Afghanistan, and how their lives intertwine. I’ve read this book before, but I wanted to revisit it.
  • - Cixin Liu: A sci-fi novel about the first contact between humans and an alien civilization, set in China during the cultural revolution. Initially I found it slow-paced, but it picks up pace after the first few chapters.
  • - Frank Herbert
  • - Moeen VN A mythological thriller, set in early India. I met the author on Chruch Street and he gave me a copy of the book. It’s a good read for a beginner, eventhough the writing style is a bit amateurish, and the plot doesn’t make a lot of sense. The math is a bit off, but it’s a good attempt. The ending made me want to read the second part, which is not out yet.
Watching
  • Mad Men - Matthew Weiner: A period drama set in the 1960s, about an advertising agency.
  • - Ricky Gervais: A dark comedy
  • - Mike Judge: A comedy about a group of software engineers trying to build a startup. Re-watching this for the nth time!
  • Fleabag - Phoebe Waller-Bridge: A dark comedy about a dry-witted woman, known only as Fleabag, has no filter as she navigates life and love in London while trying to cope with tragedy. - this is the best, the best show I have watched in a long long time
