I read therefore I am


I’ve always liked reading. Stumbling upon an interesting book is as much fun as bumping into an old friend unexpectedly. The book is a humble collection of chemicals on compressed plant matter. Yet we hate some of them, burn some of them or ban some of them. The last decade has seen the publishing industry go through turmoil, bookstores going out of business and publishers shutting down. Hope the book comes out safely.

The above snap is that of the Discovery of India by Jawaharlal Nehru.
