Focused February

Welcome to another edition of Vinita-dumps-her-brain.

And rounding off all that text, thought this types of rest by Calm was insightful.

Finished Reading:

  • Kaikeyi. Hands-down the best book I’ve read in a while. If I could gift Sanjay Patel’s Ramanyana, Chithra Divakurni’s Forest of Enchantments and this book together - that would the ultimate South Asian fusion reading package.

Finished Watching:

  • Griselda. Huge fan of Sofia Vergara so had to watch it. Would recommend and love that it’s based on a real story.
  • Killer Soup. South Asian timepass show. It was amusing and fun to watch if you’re a true crime fan.
  • One Day. The one everyone is obsessed with. More of a keeping-up-with-the-zeitgeist-watch than anything. I found the acting a bit lacking.
  • Dunki. Look, this is def not SRK’s best work but I think in the context of modern society, it was quite interesting. The story is of a group of friends that get to London from India illegally literally on boats. Dunki literally translates to going someplace illegally by jumping, leaping, and hopping.

New Vocab:

  • White anting - an Aussie term that means to subvert or undermine from within

No Comments.

I acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Custodians on whose land I live, play, and work. I pay my deepest respects to all Indigenous Elders past, present and emerging.
