Outside tech, I spend my leisure time reading, watching, and listening to stuff that fascinates me. A few of them are:
Philosophical literature Just like everyone I question the existence of humans and love to dwell into the past (Evolution history, Evolution science ) and imagine the future contemplating if we are heading in the right direction. Suggested readings: Collapse by Jared Diamond, Homo Deus, and Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari, Republic by Plato, The Idea of Decline in Western History by Arthur Herman
Films, TV shows, and music Just like any individual seeking entertainment, I too enjoy movies and TV shows. I'm a fan of both classics and pop. A few of my favorite directors are: Richard Linklater, Quentin Tarantino, George Miller, Wes Anderson, Christopher Nolan. A few movies I can watch again and again: It's a Wonderful Life, Pulp Fiction, Dazed and Confused, Parasite, Interstellar, Mad Max: Fury Road. Top drama TV shows: Mr. Robot, Dark, Better Call Saul. Sitcoms that make me chuckle: Seinfeld, Silicon Valley, Southpark, Rick and Morty,
Games and sports I follow a few games and sports such as Tennis, Cricket, Auto racing (Formula 1) and I love playing Tennis, Badminton and Table Tennis. Apart from sports, I do a lot of speedcubing with my Rubik's cube (3x3, 4x4, 5x5), Pyraminx, Megaminx, and a few others (Yeah, I used to be obsessed with cubes at some point).
