Colonialism, TIL and walking - Issue #2
By Satendra • Issue #2 • View online
Hello everyone, I hope everyone is doing well. If you are not then that’s your personal problem.
Statistically speaking this newsletter now has 18 subscribers but once a statistician got drowned in a pool as it was on an average 4 feet deep. My point is, numbers do no always tell the whole story and I’ve only 13 subscribers, not 18. But it doesn’t matter, the only number which matters is your Aadhaar card number (and maybe bank balance too)

What am I reading? 📚
Show your work! (Austin Kleon)
If you want to learn something, start sharing it. This book gives some helpful tips like self promotion, sharing what you create, don’t be a human spam and listen to others, etc. It can give you some that “extra-little-push” which humans are always looking for.
The men who ruled India (Philip Mason)
I read just a few pages of this book as I was reading other things. But if you want to read modern Indian history from a colonial POV, go for this book. You will learn how a handful of Europeans ruled over the masses of India.
Try this out 👨‍🔬
TIL Everyday.
Buy a notebook or make a WhatsApp group, add someone and then remove him. Start writing what you learn everyday. It doesn’t have to be something very extensive, small things will work too. Do this daily and it will compound over time.
Things which can help : Reading some pages of any random book.
Subreddit - r/todayilearned.
Open Wikipedia and press Shift+Alt+X.
Favorites of the week 🖤
Charles Dickens, Nietzsche, Kant, Tesla, all these great personalities have one thing in common, they walked a lot. Walking is an easy-to-implement strategy to increase appropriate novel idea generation. I have also started going for a 30-minute walk everyday, without music, podcasts or any other distraction.
