Saturday-Pentacle – Week 7 – 2017
Greetings my internet friends,
Here are some popular links, thoughts, and articles for today’s “Saturday-Pentacle” e-mail newsletter. This is a free newsletter and goes out every Saturday only for my subscribed readers.
Post of the week – Well! This one is a poem written by me about 4 years ago.
This poem re-emphasizes my belief that sometimes you don’t write a poem (or any work of art, for that matter), it gets written through you.
My most popular Instagram post recently — Margarita

A good Margarita is a result of mixing in the good diversified spirits and shaking it for quite a long time in a small Cask. Same is life, when you want something great, you put all the right ingredients, put all the hard work. You'll get the Margarita you would want. . #margarita #spirit #cherry #evening #foodtable #oldfriends #meetup

Article I’m enjoying (and pondering) — An interesting perspective on College by Tyler Curtis
For a non-engineering but more critical student, the answer is abundantly clear: It’s a big ‘No’. What they need to know can be taught more effectively at a lower cost by some other means. Good article.
What I’m reading/watching/listening to —Tony Robbins: I’m not your Guru
This is an overwhelming documentary on Tony Robbins. Just see how he accumulates his energy before delivering a
powerful blasting, on stage entry, it might blow your mind. How he understands and feels the psychology of a fellow human is unbelievable. This documentary is definitely worth a watch if you are looking for even a slight bit of motivation.
Casablanca Movie Review from my last post-
If you want to see emotions depicted perfectly by a man, see Humphrey Bogart’s performance in this Movie. Just flawless. If you want to see the beauty in pure simplicity, watch Ingrid Bergman in this movie. She’s a delight to watch. This movie, in the end, might feel like a lot of emotions, a little hint of post-war life and a graceful sacrifice for love and of love. I would give this movie a 9.5 out of a 10. I cut .5 to not glorifying the killing shot in climax.
A Quote I’m pondering on lately – This is a quote I wrote, inspired by a picture of a girl with freckles.
“There is a beauty in the dark spots as well, just you need to sprinkle a hint of light.”
― Himanshu Sachdeva
Until Next Saturday!

Quick endnote – as a few of you guys have told me that emails are not delivering in the Gmail primary inbox and going to promotions tab in your Gmail. I suggest below two pro tips to get my email in your Primary inbox from next time.
- Add my From email address ([email protected]) to your Google Contacts list.
Emails from your Google Contacts always go to their Primary inbox. So go ahead and add me to your contact list.
- Move your emails to the Primary tab.
You can teach Gmail where to deliver your messages. When you move one of my emails from Promotions tab to the Primary tab, Gmail asks whether it should always deliver my emails in your primary inbox. So please do that. You can also read more about these Gmail Help instructions.
