What is your fallback book?

1.Mrityunjay - Shivaji sawant (marathi book on Karna. the conversation at the end with krishna is the best)

2.Rashmirathi (bas naam hi kaafi hai)

3.Atomic Habits- James clear (good book to develop sustainable habits)

4.Deep work- Cal Newport ( for focused and digitally minimalistic work ethic)

5.God Talks with Arjuna- Paramhansa Yogananda (will provide a unique way to understand Gita)

How old were you when you read Rashmirathi? I was in sixth class when my father gave me the book. It was for my elder sister, who was applying for Navodaya Vidyala , where they asked questions from passages of the book. And then all kids in the family used to recite it.

last year, when i was 23😅. i know its unfortunate to get introduced to this great work of Dinkar ji so late in life. but tbh here in maharashtra i think very few people know about hindi authors and poets. the regional literature is dominated by marathi. and being from eng medium school reading hindi and even marathi was not my forte. it was recently that i decided and understood that reading the literature in its original language is the best way to understand what the author has to convey. so i started with marathi 'kadambari' on karna, Ch Shivaji and Ch Sambhaji maharaj, works of v.s.khandekar, shivaji sawant,etc

long story short....i was introduced to rashmirathi through youtube recommendation where kavi sandeep dwivedi is reciting rashmirathi, and manoj bajpayee reciting krishna ki chetavani.straightaway bought the book😄


1 suggestion: you should start with your best books of the year (like bill gates). would be helpful to all community members here.
