Valuable lessons: What did the Nobel Laureates read when they were young?

At some point, we might too curious to know what academicians are reading. Even more if we could see anyone what they are reading, a writer or a speaker or a journalist or any successful person.

Reading is the ultimate habit here.

I personally not point out the “reading habit” when it comes Nobel Laureates reading habit. Let’s take it as the lesson or might a piece of advice too.

There are enormous awards still across the globe. I don’t even know at all. I would take and proceed with whatever comes to knowledge. Even more I ask people and I do considerably a good research too.

To me as I writer, moreover, I should not fall in one-sided. Rationally speaking, here, I’m not pointing out the Nobel Prize is the superior one. To read about the people’s greatest work is something feels valuable/interesting and making us curious too. This is the categorical reaason, I started reading about the Nobel Prize nominees and Laureates.

Here is the long list which I should not share everything. I will paste the source link down below. And I sincerely encourage you all to visit further.

In their autobiographies, Nobel Laureates reveal their reading habits: how they got started, who spurred them to read on, and where they spent their time losing themselves between the pages of a book. Find out and compare with your own experience, or simply get inspired!

5 books to read for context on the coronavirus outbreak. By World Economic Forum.

It’s extremely important to read. But more often depends on the time and the situation you should learn to flex yourself to read what is required at the time period. I started a target by reading a bare minimum of 2 books a month. One would be my favourite book and the other one would be, readers commonly heard this word “must-read”. You should not compromise.

Here, I’m not contracting about reading and the readers preferences. But let me be precise even more. If we are in the economic crisis, we must start learning finance/economics books. Along with your favourite books. We just need to know what is going on around the globe and we need to start learning on the other side too.

I started learning and observing more on the health related news. I knew that, it is my out-of-syllabus. So far my understanding was chaotic to read about the virus even more simultaneously curious to about how this virus causing the people globally and affects the economy too.

Here is where I learn to start. There are enormous books to read during pandemic . Again our individual choices matters. I agree. This is one of the five books to read during pandemic. To know about 5 books and what all the books says. I sincerely encourage you all to visit the source link further.

I personally chosen second book across five books which is VIRUSES A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION. BY DOROTHY CRAWFORD. So, I’m genuinely admitting I need to know about the virus.

Let’s have a look and let’s know about the pandemic and the virus.

Valuable books: What am I reading right now?

It’s been a long time to post it. It took me a time to finish it off. Every time, this content fascinates me. Reading a book and sharing with someone is such a special feeling. Books are always gifted. To me, there is no compromise to ignore a book. Over a year, I do started recommending and sharing books to my colleagues and my blog (avid) readers too. Most probably, I was rigorous because “every book is worthy”. Whenever, I got books in any social media, the next moment I will take a screenshot and share. That’s it, without any hesitation. And if anybody recommends a book, I note it down with my notepad. I usually carry too.

That’s okay to say, thank you almighty. I got attached with the books in my undergraduate college days. Those sincere crazy readings, I still remember. Even more, my readings at that point is the stepping stone of my career. I just did “keep reading and keep reading”.

Here are my lists contains three books. I started to finish within a month. But It’s a challenge. Let’s see.

1. Environmental Studies by N. Arumugam and V. Kumaresan. When I was in my first year of undergraduate days, there is paper called Environmental studies in my first semester. It’s almost been eight years. I still preserved it. Even after eight years, when I decided to start reading and writing about climate change. This book shows me the way to start from fundamentals.

2. The Elements of Style by William Strunk. I started reading it over the last just two days. The reason, I decided to read this book is to write properly. Very small book, but I started jotting, probably it takes 2 more days to finish it off. This is one of the book that shows the ways to write properly. I’m still not okay with my writing. This is the right moment to read. If you are yet to start or already started writing, you must read it and try to apply.  

3. A biographical book from the Indian perspective. Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru (Here, Pundit mean Teacher). The first Prime Minister of independent India from (1947-1964). It was an English book. Jawaharlal Nehru: Civilizing a Savage World by Nayantara Sahgal. But, I’m reading Tamil (It’s a language). நேரு உள்ளும் புறமும். In English, Nehru- Ullum Puramum by a Tamil author Jayanatarajan. The author translated into Tamil. Even more, I pay huge attention to read biographies and autobiographies from people (leaders) who left a legacy to the world.

If you people are interested to read this book. Go-Ahead. Please comment, what you people are reading right now.

Valuable books: Books to read about Climate change.

Books shows you the way to read something new/something more.

After going through several articles, news and inspirational personalities to know about climate change. It started taking lot of time to pick up a book to read. As I said in my earlier blog posts, I decided to start with Naomi Klein’s book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs The Climate.

https://naomiklein.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/TCE-cover-hp-gallery.jpg

Because this is the first one I saw. Also, I would to like to continue to read other books with regard to climate change from the same author. Even more, I decided to pick few more to read. I just started researching, luckily, I got 21 books to read about climate change from The New York Times. Also, I just decided to pick the second book to read.

I personally encourage you all to read any of these 21 books or any other books too. This is also the right moment, we must know and spread the awareness about the climate change. I agree with you all, there are numerous problems still in outside. But this is the problem for entire planet, our “Mother earth”. Just a minute before, I arose few basic questions to my brother regarding climate, deforestation, humidity level of the planet and life span of the earth. He is very good at Chemistry and Geography. Even more, he is a well academician. The fact he delivered is, due to the emission of C0 which is one of the greenhouse gases, from vehicles and chemical industries affects ozone layer. This in turn raises the temperature of the earth and melting of glaciers which leads to rise of sea level. If you do think, our upcoming generations has to live. It is entirely our responsibility trying to save and earth.

We might have no idea, whether Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Robots gonna save/dominate our planet. From this moment, let’s start taking care our earth. It is all about individual initiative. We should be the volunteer.

If you would like to know the 21 books and other stuff. I sincerely encourage you all to visit source link further.

7 PICS TELLS YOU HOW TO LEARN AI?

This is the critical way to share it in the pictures. But my point is, either pictures or through words. I must convey in a legible manner. I’m also one of the curious guys to learn AI also started analysing the impact about the AI too. Quite frankly, I must admit that I am in a beginner stage to learn AI. Although, quite seriously I should take a step to learn too. I cannot say there is no possibility of learning. I believe there are few ways in which I was doing right now to learn either you can learn from AI reports, articles from World Economic Forum and Stanford University’s AI Index report and even more our favourite reading books Harvard Business Review books and experts those who written and observing and learning from AI start-ups and you have a look at what every sector are doing with AI and what would be the impact. Finally, watching documentaries.

Usually, I do share in five pics. Eventually, it goes to seven. That’s okay. These seven are the most important one. I could not reduce it. There is no way of reducing it too.

My point is, every pic never tells you how to learn AI. Only my first will tells you that’s it. But the next upcoming pics will be quite different with use cases, landscapes, how it works, categories, Chatbot.

Please correct me, if I’m wrong. I have no overconfidence. I more often find ways to do more. That’s it. I felt lucky and deserved too to post this content. I’m still working more and more.

In this Fourth Industrial Revolution, these are the important fields we got an opportunity to learn. There is nothing wrong with learning. If you felt curious or you feel a catchy phrase that sounds like you need to know. Or whatever it is. That’s fine. Let’s learn and deliver (write).

Without any hesitation, I will assure you all. You can learn something from this post.
