My Top 10 Must Reads


Research is never done in isolation – Every thought is informed by a mass of previous experiences. Reverberating with an ever changing collection of sensual affects – literature, music, film, the aesthetics of a foreign place or novelty of an unfamiliar encounter – My perspectives are always becoming. With that said, I am excited to share with you 10 inspiring books that are resonating with me as I study in Goa!
