Every crisis is an opportunity.
The same crisis plays out in different ways for people in different positions. If you are stuck at home working, you are not doing so bad. You have a job and readjusting your life for a new reality and you may also have some extra time.
Any crisis becomes an opportunity when it is acted upon. This uncertain time is the right hour to rediscover your lost interests and hobbies. If you bought that interesting book at the airport, now is the right time to pick it up.
At Dosa, we believe in exploring all the colors of life. Here is a list of great books we enjoyed while in quarantine and hope you will too.
Book 1: Seven Brief Lessons on Physics by Carlo Rovelli
This 80-page short read helps you get in touch with the science nerd in you. You don’t have to be a science graduate to pick this book. It is a brief book but not a simple one. These seven lessons will confuse you, will make you question, and force you to think. It may not answer the question of why we exist, it will answer how we exist.
Book 2: The Lessons of History by Will & Ariel Durant
A great book to travel across the through-line of history. It is not the final truth, but it is a version worth exploring with an open mind. This is a true testament of what books offer, in some cases insights collected over a lifetime.
Book 3: Leonardo by Walter Isaacson
In history, you will encounter figures who make you believe that the forces of nature came together to bring them to life to advance human evolution. Leonardo is one of them. If there was ever a manifestation of collusion of art and science it is Leonardo. He is a force of nature, created by nature to study nature and advance it. A must-read if you want to experience the power of genuine curiosity.
Book 4: Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
It is a hard pill to swallow, but it is a needed one. The understanding Yuval has about the history and the outrageous clarity in his narrative has blown my mind. This is not a one time read. It is a reference to start looking at the human journey for anyone curious about anything.
If you are like us and prefer to complement your book with a good drink, you will love our collection.
Stay Safe & Happy Reading!
