My recent reading ventures took me to Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. This is a book that I started a few years ago but left it unfinished.

Spotify is my go-to app when it comes to music streaming. It’s free, it has a good collection of music. But unfortunately, Spotify is not yet available in India. So, if you are in India and want to listen to your favorite music on Spotify, your only way out is a VPN from Spotify-supported countries. (Spotify needs a supported country IP when a user signs up, but after that you don’t need to use the same country based IP to listen to music, but it logs you out every 14 days if you don’t use an IP from supported country.)
