About 6-7 weeks back, I posted this on my Instagram account (link to my account):


And I received a lot of positive response, so I thought I’ll make it a daily habit and post one article or video that I come across every day, which is impactful or has some meaningful message. Although I did not end up doing it every day, let’s say I could do it 4 out of 7 days in a week. Unfortunately, since Instagram and WhatsApp stories are ephemeral, a lot of you might not have seen some of the articles and videos. Many requested that I post the links to all of them so that they have a repository to go back to whenever they feel like reading or watching.

Alas. Here it is: the title of the article/video along with the link. Based on what you guys think, I’ll try making a post like this every 6-7 weeks! Let me know if you have other suggestions. Happy reading! 😊
