Those who read can relate to what a pleasurable activity it is. It is the easier way to get lost in another world. With advancements in technology, although we can conveniently read books on any gadget, I find it most soothing to pick up a hard copy, cozy up with a cup of hot beverage, and read a book.
Last year, I transitioned from reading fiction to more non-fiction.
As per their description, fiction refers to settings and characters created from fantasy, while nonfiction refers to factual stories focused on true events and people. Contrary to beliefs that non-fiction is boring, it can be deeply enlightening to be exposed to real people’s lives and philosophies.
Here are my top three picks of books you can read and will truly enjoy.
Ikigai by Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles
The book is based on the Japanese philosophy of living long. It talks about finding your Ikigai. It is a short read and worth every word. It is one of those books where you will bookmark words and phrases and possibly keep revisiting them.
Power of the Subconscious Mind by Dr Joseph Murphy
It is a compelling book about the storehouse that your brain is and what miracles it can achieve by just believing in and trusting your thoughts. In each chapter, he talks about examples, and events and leaves you, the reader, with a summary of tips that you can try for yourself.
Think like a Monk by Jay Shetty
This book is based on the author’s experience of spending time as a monk and talks about overcoming obstacles in life with anecdotes and methods from his point of view. The book itself is a nice read and gives a perspective on things in life from a different angle.
As I go pick up my next book to read, I hope you have a good day reading to your heart’s delight.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
