Monthly Wrap! (October)

Monthly Wraps are blogs that are up on the last Sunday of the month which include:

  1. Blogs of the month
  2. Book recommendations 
  3. What did I curate? Resources I’m binging on – of course, I’ll be choosing the major ones. Just a brim of how much I curate!
  4. Reminders & Reflections to ponder – Of various of my reflections of the month, I’ll choose one or a few. And some re-realized reminders!
  5. My writing journey/ my book updates 

Here’s October’s “Monthly Wrap!”

Blogs I wrote this month:

  1. Blog 75: The Tragic Drama
  2. Blog 76: Hardships & Pain
  3. Blog 77: Write, write better!
  4. Blog 78: “I am worthless”

Book Recommendations:

This month I could read only 2 books:

  2. The Ancient Science of mantras by Om Swami

What I curated:


1. Martian, 2. Lion, 3. Dejavu, 4. Thurthu Nirgamana, 5. Sita Ramam, 6. Lucky Man, 7.Chhichhore, 8. Cars 3, 9. A bug’s life, 10. Planes – 2, 11. Sing 2, 12. Orphan: The First Kill.


  1. Marvel’s Daredevil [Completed]
  2. Marvel’s She-Hulk [Completed]


  1. Marvel studio’s Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Trailer
  2. Gandhadha Gudi | Official Trailer

Must watch YouTube videos:

  1. The Origin & Rise of MrBeast | Full Documentary You can see the depth in him. So inspirational!
  2. MrBeast | Full story It clearly shows how he’s striving to be an artist. And of course, his studio is insane!

Reminders & reflections to ponder:

  • The truly wealthiest person is one who has the courage, (i.e ability to exercise his freedom) to live the lifestyle he wishes to and which in turn gives him health and the freedom to do what he loves, create art and serve mankind!
  • Maathadorige olle vichara kodu. Kelasa maaduvavarige kelasa. Or, in general, give great concepts to artists, and give work to one who has the urge to.
  • Ragas are way more dynamic for them to be labeled as to depict one emotion or one bhava or one rasa. And hence it is stupid to make rules not to play or practice certain ragas in certain times and seasons. Rules & restrictions have no place in creativity. They can be voluntarily put in place by the artist himself to deliberately soar creativity. But not externally. A prescription suggested for the best use case for a raga is acceptable. However, withholding an artist’s creative urge will do no good to anyone, does it?
  • The question is, do you want to die rich or do you want to live rich, or both?
  • The more you do something, the more you want to do it
  • Irrespective of what and how much you know, your progress in the physical world depends on what and how much you can do with what and how much you have.

My Writing/Book update:

  • The sequel to my first book hasn’t moved this month.
  • However, the other book I’m writing on learning music has made decent progress.

Thank You,

Yours Loving,

Sanath Kumar Naibhi
