A marvellous book by two outstanding researchers on the nature of poverty and how to end it.

Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss | Rajeev Balasubramanyam
Pickpick

Professor Chandra is a wonderful character — stodgy, flawed, contentious, contemptuous — yet vulnerable, insecure, lonely, repentent, and ridiculous enough to win our sympathy.

The book elaborates the pathology of fake and staged encounters ,the circumstances under which these killings take place and the complicity of the state machinery. It narrates the reality of an Indian democratic state whose agents arbitrarily kidnap ,torture, rape and kill for personal benefit or gratification and are given immunity for doing so under laws like AFSPA.

The poor get poorer, and the rich get richer and even get better, and stronger and even richer and the gap keeps increasing.

Happiness is as elusive as a butterfly, and you must never pursue it. If you stay very still, it might come and settle on your hand. But only briefly. Savour those precious moments, for they will not come your way very often.#Ruskinbond #notesfromasmallroom #weekendreading #sunday #lockdown

I did not sleep last night, for you had kissed me. You held my hand and put it to your cheek and to your breasts. And I had closed your eyes and kissed them, and taken your face in my hands and touched your lips with mine. And then, my darling, I stumbled into the light like a man intoxicated, and did not say or know what people were saying or doing …‘ Gosh! #ruskinbond #fridaynight #reading

The book includes 9 chapters to manage stress or anxiety. It also helps to diagnose mental health issues . The author has quoted the tips from many books on the said subject. From Netflix series to books on mental health, it mentions almost all. The principle which the author has repeated is "small changes can have a big impact". #mentalhealth #febbook #monthlyread #ailbhemalone #shortbook

Moby-Dick | Herman Melville

And there is all the difference in the world between paying and being paid. The act of paying is perhaps the most uncomfortable infliction that the two orchard thieves entailed upon us. But being paid,— what will compare with it? The urbane activity with which a man receives money is really marvellous, considering that we so earnestly believe money to be the root of all earthly ills, and that on no account can a monied man enter heaven. #mobydick
