On #WorldBookDay, a list of 10 books I have loved, read, reread — all translations, retellings, analyses of the #Mahabharata.

1. On the Mahabharata by Sri Aurobindo
A deep look at the #Mahabharata — its complex politics, its authorship and its spirituality — in a thin volume
2. On the Meaning of the #Mahabharata by VS Sukthankar — the man who delivered to us the Critical Edition, one who deserves the Bharat Ratna

A mini thread on his work


#WorldBookDay
3. The #Mahabharata (10 volumes) by Bibek Debroy — translation of the Critical Edition, the final reference for anyone taking this magnificent journey forward. Easier to read than other translations

Genghis Khan literally walked around these walls....
Also immigrants aren't invaders

Irony that the US and the UK hate immigrants so much.

They're not going to do what you did when you were in foreign countries. They just want to live there, not rob and steal everything don't worry

Also our economic system creates immigration
Ideally we should live in a world where people only want to move because of their preferred climate.

The rest is all bullshit.

But yeah immigrants are good actually. But the economic system you like actually creates them....

It is #WorldBookDay so I want to say a few words about how one book changed my life. The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy.
I am painfully dyslexic. And when I say painfully, I mean physically. When I read physical books I get splitting headaches after 4 pages. If you don't have dyslexia then the gif below sums up what happens a page 2 for me. By page 4 words will seem to drop off the page.
Up to the age of 14 I only ever read comics (The Beano was a favorite), and even then very slowly. It would take around a week to read only two. That was less than 40 pages a week.
