We are now coming to the end of the initial three-week lock-down in India. But there’s still not much clarity on what’s going to happen next. And it’s the same across most countries. Here are a few articles to kick off another week of uncertainty:

Power Laws: How Nonlinear Relationships Amplify Results – The pandemic has brought exponential curves to the mainstream. This article explains this (and other Power Laws) further.

Minimalism Renewed – I do not intend to use this time and article to push any agendas. But it is worth reflecting on the Minimalism philosophy as we are all confronted with the present situation and possibly reflecting on what the future might look like.

The Little Recession Playbook: 10 things you need to know right now – Let’s face it, we are staring at a recession. The only thing we do not know is how deep or long it might be. There is no harm in being prepared to face it, and that is where this article might help.

What colonial writing about Indian birds reveals about the British Raj – Finally, one of the positives from the present crisis is the rejuvenation of Nature and wildlife. My wife and I were commenting on how we can hear more birds these days. Bird-watching has been a hobby of mine for nearly four decades now and I would like to think that the passion is still as strong as it was all those years ago when I first started learning how to identify birds. Even if you are not a bird-watcher, this is a good read.

Stay safe, stay positive!
