An audiobook I loved and recommend —

Sapiens – A Brief history of humankind – This book changed my world view. It literally taught my history of us humans. A great timeline of billions of years described in hours. But this is not just a history book, it contains a perspective about our existence. How empires grew, how they fell, how the current humans evolved from many human tribes.

Narration from Derek Perkins is amazing. I loved the book and I think every human being should read it.

If you want to read this book for free. Audible gives a book free for my readers. You can go here and start your free trial. In case you love it, keep going or cancel anytime.


A movie I loved –

Superbad – This is not an intellectually stimulating movie. It is funny and a little out of the lines. But this great to watch. Jonah Hill nailed it in many sequences of this movie. It’s a college drama about two friends trying to get alcohol for one of the boy’s crush’s house party. So much happens in between them getting to the alcohol. There is a character in the movie you wanna watch out for – McLovin. Plus Seth Rogen as a police officer. Damn!

Here is a trailer –


Quote I’m pondering on lately – 

The originality of an idea depends on the obscurity of sources.
