Hi, friends.
I hope you all are well. Thanks for your continued support. Please share this newsletter with others if you think they would benefit from it.
I just realized how horrible I am. I used to be proud that I love spending time alone, but that doesn’t sound very interesting anymore. I know that is not the kind of start that one wishes for a newsletter.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love “me time”, but for some reason, I feel the need for human interaction more than before. I don’t regret wasting time with my friends or visiting someone. I love it. I think that is the new normal for me.
I’m also happy to inform you that I’ve taken all doses of the anti-rabies vaccine! Seriously, IIMA needs to do something about the dogs on campus, in addition to many things that need fixing. I’ve linked below an article that I wrote.
My friend and I discovered this great shelf of books at the IIMA library. That’s probably the only good part about IIMA. It has books on football, tennis and cricket. I have not gotten around reading them because I’ve been busy (read lazy).
I am excited for the Garba Night happening tonight! I am open to learning about and participating in other cultures. So, when you’re in Gujarat, what better way to celebrate than Garba?

Books
I am reading Poor Economics by Abhijit V. Banerjee & Esther Duflo. It has proved very insightful so far.
I am also reading The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien just to distract myself from rigorous subjects and topics. It’s been a fun read so far, I’m about 63% done.
I have also started reading Nothing Much Happens by Kathryn Nicolai. I have just finished reading chapter one and I like it so far. There are just so many things going on in life that I have been slacking off on reading.
Please let me know if you know of better/faster ways of reading books.
