@I_Like_Big_Books Thank you for the tag and sorry for the late reply!

2. I drive to work and listen to podcasts.
3. Work :-)
4. A savoury mixture of spicy peanuts, assorted roasted lentils that we call " mixture " in south India.

#WhatWouldYouDo @DannyHattan
1. I would love to be able to control minds!😈
2. The Orogenes from NK Jemisin's incredible Broken earth series. Their powers to avert natural disasters in a world where they're going to get more frequent could save a lot of lives.
3. Alicia Donadio from Justin Cronin's The Passage- i was heartbroken when she died.

These were thought provoking fun questions!!

Amazing. So even if you're Charlotte Bronte and have written one of the greatest proto feminist works of literature, you still have to be hot.

Pride | Ibi Zoboi

Underrated : Ibi Zoboi, not as famous as she should be in India, and Kiran Nagarkar.
Overrated: so many- Donna Tartt, F Scott Fitzgerald, Sally Rooney, Andrew Sean Greer
Also irrelevant photo of the adorable cats in my building!

Vansa @jenniferw88 this was a thought provoking question !! 8mo

4. The sound of music, Fiddler on the roof,kuch kuch hota hai
5.In India- Delhi, for its history, public open spaces and amazing food.

jmofo Kuch Kuch Hota Hai! I haven‘t seen that in years! (I have only seen a very few Baliwood films but that one was super fun! Thanks for reminding me of it!) 9mo
