Which monthly mag are you referring to?

I used to refer to vision but it is just getting too overwhelming with all the news in shorts stuff and putting everything under the sun in it. What could be a suitable replacement?

I checked out the forum one. It was short around 70-80 pages and neatly organised. However, in the intro, it was written that it would act as a supplement to ca class students and mgp ones. My concern is that if I am not a ca course student, would I miss any important issue which would have been covered by their ca course?

I have been referring to it. Don't think that you need to be a CA student. When I asked Sir what was the reason for mentioning it, he smiled and said - "It is a business decision.".

Rejoined office.. Following the roster due to Covid.. So have to go on alternate days.. watched Witcher series. Lets see.. what else to watch..😄

Witcher 2 - not as good as 1 :(

Hmm [sighs]

Unpopular opinion: didn’t really like the Witcher. Had to force myself to sit through season 1 🙊


Henry cavil is a big brilliant dork which is the only reason why I sat through season 1, but even celeb crushes have their limits 😂

Yes to crushing on Henry Cavil 😍

I love how relaxed and British he is in interviews… he has a very easygoing demeanour that I really like. Doesn’t hurt that he’s easy on the eyes as well 😂

@Apollo11 Its like saas bahu serial of english landed aristocracy. One can keep one's brain in the almirah and need  only spinal cord to enjoy it :) 
However after hectic mains , these kind of series helps .Plus it will improve vocabulary and  one can learn how to speak sarcastically while being politely insulting  at the same time!   


So is it nothing like The Crown? Coz that was brilliant

Lol, your last comment is enough reason for me to watch it 😂

I might be biased but I really love both 🙊

Thank you guys@kaunhai and@LetsGetThisBread . Frankly, I have completed 5 shifts but not able to finish the first episode of first season. I got pride and prejudice vibes from its clips, but not anymore. Only feel sorry for poor Bates. 

Also@Villanelle , if you're into historical drama, you can't afford to not check out The Great (if you haven't watched it already). It's an "occassionally true story" about Catherine the great's accession and reign. Nothing like the crown, but very very very engrossing. Hulu.

Thanks, it looks really time-saving and neatly organised!
Wondering if the business decision is meant to draw students towards the CA course or drive them away from magazine :P :P

Hill House is my all-time favourite show (even more than Mrs Maisel and the office, though they fall in a different genre altogether). It has a mix of everything- emotions, tragedy, horror, family bonds, love and amazing metaphors. Even after watching it for the 5th time, its beauty still remains unparalleled.
If you like it, you can check out the Reddit thread of it later. There, a user has written the background of each of the ghosts (more like their interlinked story/feud and how the house started feeding on the people).
But without that also, the story of Crains is way too engrossing in itself with the amazing cinematography.

If you want fun lighthearted, tier 2, “not quite Office” level of US comedy do check out Superstore on Netflix

The wheels of time was also very decent(though expected much more considering I have read that book). Rosamund pike holds the linchpin as Moraine around which other roles have done decent work. Rand Al Thor should have been some other energetic teen like Timothee Chalamet.
