One never knows where the next dose of inspiration will come from. On Mentza, we have stopped being surprised and started enjoying and expecting them. Sample some of these from the last week.
Podcasting in India | 11 year old Abhieshri, a published author with Arisudan Yadav
The voice says 11 years old. And the words, ages of wisdom. Meet Abhieshri a publisher – poetry and prose writer. When asked for advice on how to get started with writing she says – “don’t write all the good parts at once, spread them out” and “write what you want to read”. Don’t hear this because she is a cute 11-year-old, but listen for how she has gone about writing her stories and nurturing those characters. Listen here.

Blindate: Why do we resist the joy of changing our minds? With Ron Barooah
Why is failure taboo? Why do we listen to refute? What’s stopping our learning journey? Why do we hesitate to fail? What’s an experiment that has a 100% chance of success. What’s a learning mindset? Should we celebrate failure or just accept and move on. Sunday mornings get better with the ‘Blindate’ every week. Listen to this chat here. And as if that wasn’t enough on change, a couple of hours later Nandini Das was on her channel ‘Brainsensical’ talking about our brain’s unique contradictory capability of loving status quo and yet being very adaptive to change.

I missed the last session but it was fun to hear the recording.
