I felt maybe dalits in india are closest to the blacks in America. Overall an ok read for people in india
    if things deteriorate like they do now, soon enough the white-black demography in american culture can be likened to that of hindus-nonhindus in india...

    hindus will always consider nonhindus as "humans"...that's not the case with whites and blacks....the whites can't see blacks as humans....nothing can get worse than that.

    by blacks i mean african blacks...not any black skinned human

    Its much different black white issue is a racial issue with a slavery background. India religion issues are much different. Not going there as it deviates from thread.

    Still obama won two terms as president. So things have changed and as non Hispanic whites trend towards less than 50% of US population things will get even more better nonwithstanding recent problems under trump

    Started the year with a forensic thriller but ended up finishing a biography first .

    #Book1

    Rekha - An untold story
    Author : Yasser Usman (Rajesh khannayude bio mooparu thanne annu )


    The biggest drawback of this book is that there is zero contribution from Rekha herself .
    More like a consolidated journal of all the controversial interviews of hers given throughout the career.
    Chennayile childood ...Gemini ganeshan acknowledge cheyath pithrwatham ....how she was looked down in bollywood ....Big B influence etc etc

    In short pala interviews .. media vazhi nammal kelkathathu aayitu yaathonnum ella
    Not a exciting read ... Rekha enna entitye patti yaathonnum ariyatha oru aalku revelation aayirikum ... pandathe almost ella bollywood naayikamare pole oru tragic queen !!
    Its so nice when you can sit with someone and not have to talk .
