Podcast: How Bollywood became famous in USSR
This is my best find of this week. I was so amazed at first to know Bollywood was insanely famous in USSR before its dissolution in 1991. To give you an idea, there's a story that when Raj Kapoor visited Moscow for the first time in 1956, his fans lifted his taxi and carried it over their heads. Do listen to this episode to find out how he got this fame in USSR. You can listen to the episode here. Below are my notes from the episode as a Twitter Thread, read here.

This article explains how cryptoassets market are manipulated. With an ocean of different cryptocurrencies currently in the market & wide spread of mediums to reach out to potential buyers, there are high amount of frauds happening in the cryptoassets market.

Quote I Liked:
Maybe you enjoy deep conversations about a wide range of topics,
and your parents don’t,
and seem only interested in the weather or what you had for lunch earlier.
But growing cynical is the best way to build future regrets.
