Book- a Gardener in the Wasteland

Reading different perspectives on Hindu Mythologies, I enjoyed the book how ignorance and inability to know the world around us can be taken as a chance to manipulate us. In the past, the exclusion of education crippled us to know the world around us. 

This book, "a Gardener in the Wasteland" is a graphic novel talking about Jotiba Phule's Fight for Liberty. 

I never knew the story of Savitri Bhai Phule and her contribution to education in India. I read her story in this book. It's interesting how Srividya Natarajan shared the story in a simple and gripping way by taking sarcasm way explaining Hindu Mythologies and Joti Ba's fight for liberty. 

Will read more about Savitri Phule. Thanks, Kaveri for another good suggestion. Loved reading the book.

Music- Rajasthani Folk Song- Holi Aayi Re

 For the first time, I heard this song at Jawahar Kala Kendr by a band in a progressive rock style. This is raw and gripping.
