What I liked 2016-07-03

I really enjoyed reading the full judgement given by the Madras High Court in the Perumal Murugan case. The court said something on the lines of: not all art may be for everyone, and if you don't like a book, throw it away. The judgement also made it clear that it is the responsibility of the state to ensure that things don't go haywire using appropriate measures, and banning things left, right and center is not the way to deal with it.

This letter that a Law professor wrote in response to a student's complaint about him wearing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt is superb!

Gabriel Weinberg's post with a list of mental models that he found repeatedly useful has been great. There have also been some great comments on it! I wish to keep going back to the post.

Anaghs shared a summary of Brian Christain's Algorithms to Live By and the books seems really interesting. Added it to my reading list.

This ad by BigBazaar for Eid touched a chord.

Black Mirror's The Entire History of You totally got to my head, and if you are interested in the future of technology and human behavior, I highly recommend watching this episode, if not all the episodes. Thanks to @9 for the recommendation.

Calvin and Hobbes' Search is a fun project - search for Christmas, Life and Universe and enjoy the wisdom!

Sowmya Rajendran's post on how the menstrual cup touched her life more than anything else after the Internet, was an interesting read.

The lights in the audience truly look "amazingly beautiful" in this Coldplay video.


I'll try and post things that made me happy or touched my heart, each week.
