Study with me, Indian cinema and Oscars - Issue #17

Hi, I hope y'all are doing well. From next Sunday, expect the newsletters to be on time and with less grammatical mistakes because now I have a laptop. Publishing from phone was such a taxing task.

What am I reading? 📚
A New Idea of India: Individual Rights in a Civilisational State by Harsh Madhusudan & Rajeev Mantri - It is a sort of anti-thesis to the Nehruvian idea of India. It lays emphasis on the ‘a new idea’ rather than ‘the idea’.
Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates - It is about gender equality. It discusses why we need to lift up females in order to lift the whole community.
I’ve just started both of these books and have some pre-conceived notions about them, so, I’d refrain myself from saying much.
Try this out 👨‍🔬
Study with me - Watch study with me videos while studying if you are struggling to focus. It helps withstand the lack of motivation and you can get into a flow state somewhat easily. But it should be used as a short-term strategy, right? That’s what I think.
Favorites of the week 🖤
Movie - Udham Singh
Brilliant movie. Masterpiece. When 2 hours passed away I thought what will they show in the remaining 40 minutes but what was left was the most amazing part of the movie, the Jallianwala Bagh massacre scene, too good.
Quite ironically the ‘Indian jury’ rejected this picture for the Oscar Awards because of the Jallianwala incident scene, because it shows hatred for the Brits. Neo-colonialism moment.
Indian cinema needs more movies like this for personalities like Sachindranath Sanyal, Mohanlal Dhingra, Chandrashekhar Azad, Veer Savarkar, Batukeshwar Dutt, Bhagat Singh, etc.
