Victory City

Salman Rushdie

Salman Rushdie’s latest novel describes how an orphan girl, Pampa Kampana, receives a boon from a goddess that turns her into a demi-god and a fundamental pillar in creating the kingdom of Bisnaga in 14th-century South India. In a world ruled by men, she tries to give women an equal right that comes with a share of power, freedom and will. But with time, rulers, power and allegiance change, and Pampa’s story is no exception. The novel is a perfect blend of myth, history and love.

A beautiful book that will take you on a journey, in words and in images. A good way to see the world from the eyes of others, especially in places we don’t get to visit a lot.

So Good They Can’t Ignore You

Cal Newport

Introduces the concept of career capital and what makes a job satisfying. Also includes some notes on deliberate practice and early thoughts on deep work, which the author would eventually develop into another book. Essential reading for people starting their career in my opinion.

Herman Hesse

Beautiful retelling of an Indian folk tale about the life of the Buddha from a western perspective. It was written just after WW1, I think it resonated with a lot of people who had lost hope for humanity. Similarly, when times are tough or the world seems hostile, I fall back on what I learned in this book.

Tina Fey

An all time favourite read, this autobiography from Tina Fey walks through the story of her life from her roots as a young shy kid to becoming the head writer of Saturday Night Live and her own TV show. It’s funny, thoughtful, and incredibly interesting (especially if you’re a comedy nerd like myself!).
