Fluid Book Review
Author of Fluid: Ashish Jaiswal

The author explains the idea of fluid through the stories of great minds like Leonardo Da Vinci, Steve Jobs, C.V. Raman and many others. Fluid is all about the curiosities that an individual has and how could one make opportunities from their curiosities.

Ashish Jaiswal starts the book by explaining a beautiful song written by Malvina Reynolds called Little Boxes which reflects on the present education system. The book gives a detailed explanation of how the Spinning Dancer Test restricts the ideas of people and labels them on the dominance of their brain (Left-Brained people lean toward logic and Right-Brained people lean towards creativity). The author completely negates the idea of the left brain and right brain deciding one’s career. 

“No matter how lateralized the brain can get, though, the two sides still work together,” — Carl Zimmer, Science Writer

Commonly, we hear phrases like “Scientists should be doing science-related stuff”, Artists should only be artists” or “Businessmen should only do business”. The author breaks these prevailing concepts through case studies and stories of geniuses like Da Vinci, C.V Raman etc… For example how Leonardo Da Vinci who is known as one of the great artists, is also an architect as well as a scientist. Apart from Mona Lisa, he is also the master brain behind the Golden Horn Bridge and his drawings of a human foetus along with anatomical observations explain Da Vinci as an artist+architect+scientist.

“Sadly, the subject-island forms of the current education system distance an artist and a scientist from each other.” 

As the artificial intelligence era is approaching, Jaiswal also decodes the importance of fluidity in the coming decades, as there is a high chance for most the professions to be carried away by intelligent robots. From the journey of the encyclopedia to Wikipedia and through the references of tech entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerburg and Elon Musk, Fluid explains how AI and automation can be harmful in many ways to human existence.

Why should one read this book:

  • This book communicates a new unique perspective in simple words.
  • There are many short stories and case studies that will cater you fresh ideas.
  • Contain a lot of ideas for speech, motivations, public speaking and career guidance.

Who should read this book:

  • If you love self-help books- This is the right book.
  • If you are confused about your skill sets and career – Go for Fluid.
  • If you are a motivational speaker, public speaking coach, or life skill trainer- Yup, give the fluid a chance.

Conclusion

Fluid, grabbed my attention from the book rack with its subtitle “Be more than what you thought to be”. I felt that this essence of the subtitle could be carried to life once the book is completed. Through stories, pictorial representations and case studies; felt like Ashish Jaiswal has opened door to new perspectives and priorities. If you are someone who loves self-help books and could accommodate unique thoughts- this is the right book for you.

Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar-The Untold Truth

Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar

This time I chose the #Film Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar for my weekend classic. Such an inspiring film, well written and well-directed.
A film portraying the life story of the legend with a strong idea of an egalitarian society. The man who lead a parallel freedom fight for the rights of the Dalits.
Ambedkar believed that the freedom of the nation is only possible if there is unity among the nation. The caste system created ignorance in the nation and there was a big division between the haves and have not. Ambedkar being a Dalit has faced a lot of discrimination in his life. Unlike others who got adjusted to the oppressions, he moved forward toward fighting the caste system. He found a tool for battling the caste system- “Education”. He understood that it’s only through education, organisation and agitation one can change the norms of society.
In the Contemporary Indian scenario, we lack these three qualities.
1) Only through education, one could understand the issues in the community.
2)Through organisation (Community participation) we could strengthen the community to challenge the injustice.
and
3) By agitation, we should sensitize the government and demand justice.
