Every post written by Mahima on Womaning makes me pause, think, and feel like I know exactly what she's talking about from my own personal experience or that of my friends and family. Womaning is the best newsletter out there on everyday experiences of women in India -- experiences that are so familiar to us but often come as a surprise to men, who seem to be oblivious of what women around them go through in a world designed for men.
The Alipore Post is like a pocket of sunshine sitting in my inbox, waiting to brighten up my day. With heartwarming, uplifting, and inspiring art, poems, literary excerpts, and other beautiful things, this newsletter stands out as one of my favourites!
Prathyush's newsletter is my favourite Substack on films and books! I hardly read content on mainstream films but all of Prathyush's posts have so much depth and nuance that it makes me think, watch the films being referred to, and then reflect on what he has to say.
Nishant's newsletter makes you pause, take in his beautiful art on everyday moments, and observe the people, things, and events around you with greater attention. It's always fascinating to read his posts and learn more about his thought process and approach to his craft.
The best public policy newsletter I have read! Every post teaches me something new and highlights the first principles we must keep returning to in order to better understand the world around us.
Lines of The Grass is my favourite sports newsletter, and given that I hardly watch sports anymore, it's saying something that I devour every post! Sarthak has a way of connecting sports-related events with broader themes that anyone and everyone can relate to. His passion comes through in his writing and it's an absolute pleasure to read his posts!
