Somebody please write this fanfic for me. Feluda (Pradosh Mitter) murder mystery story where the villain is an artsy photographer white woman who looks like Kalki Koechlin. She tries to seduce Feluda but Feluda resists her flirtations and finds out she is the killer.

>>449 Join a big library, and borrow books from likeminded people. And scout melas/markets for people selling 2nd stuff. I once found a guy selling 2nd hand books at rs40/KG kek, 3 of them turned out to be absolutely kino.
>>453 Good advice, I got through my bachelors using only used books and library. Got them real real cheap.
>>451 kek, what gave it away?

Local Library Thread Anon 09/13/2022 (Tue) 19:43:10 ID:e119df No. 397 [Reply]
What's your favorite nearby library? It seems like public libraries in India are a complete state. I usually go to the Asiatic Society library which has roughly everything you could ask for, but it isn't the kind where you can borrow. Also doesn't have much that's in other languages. The other libraries usually end up being college libraries or reading rooms with zero selection. What's the situation in your city?

>>402 Nah, I have a friend who has a Bibliotik account. Pretty much every book is available there, and the quality is top notch. The only downside is that I freeload off him.
you guys have city libraries, that's nice...
>>406 You don't need one, just buy a kindle, get into a couple of pvt trackers and pirate every book in existence. A seedbox costs 800rs/month.
>>405 Next time I head there I'll name a hundred titles you can't find anywhere else. You'd be surprised at how much literature there exists beyond the mainstream.
>>408 Ik mate. I guess you haven't discovered the power of pvt trackers like BIB yet. They fulfill any request within 24hrs. The problem is that it's impossible to get into unless you have a friend in there.

/his/ - History General - 75 Years of Dindustan Edition Anon 08/20/2022 (Sat) 17:55:36 ID:5a90b6 No. 85 [Reply]
Let's discuss Indian history. Post books you consider essential for any reasonable reading of recent Indian history and broad culture. Books that reflect on different aspects of the last 75 years are particularly welcome - from sports to entertainment to education to the economy. Included Six Glorious Epochs so newfags can have a more colorful introduction to broader Indian history.

>>98 The one thread I thought would take off ends with me being called a chamaar I've read praise for that one, but I'm kinda bored with general Indian histories now. Was looking for more specific histories y'know, why Indian sports (save for cricket) suck so much, a non LGBT book on modern hijdas, the rise and fall of Campa Cola, shit like that.
>>121 To be clear, I don't mean that I want a history on these specific things. Meant histories on oddly specific things you people have read and found interesting
>>85 Read decolonising the hindu mind by elst, its the best book i ve read about overview of ideological development and polemic about hindu pol movements
>>122 Read Gurcharan Das's works.

Sanskrit courses Anon 09/07/2022 (Wed) 02:40:55 ID:3fee6e No. 355 [Reply]
>>355 It depends on your priorities. If your goal is fluency in spoken Sanskrit, this looks like a pretty worthwhile course. If your goal is understanding scripture and ancient literature, you'd be better off reading a Sanskrit grammar textbook.
>>356 Thanks anon. I'd like both, but I'll probably start with the grammar and basic vocab from the site and books you(?) recc'd last thread. Thanks yaar.

>>348 >narcopolis >tartar steppe >dracula 3 books so far... 2 more books and we will make a poll i think many guys who participated in the /lit/ threads on /b/ aren't aware about /sa/, so you think we should shill /sa/ there ?
>>349 how is crime and punishment yaaro? you can include notes from underground as well, I didn't finish it last time. Might give it one more try if everyone reads along

What am I in for, /sa/thiyo? Also more recommendations for new readers are welcome.
>>350 >how is crime and punishment yaaro based book, will add it into the poll too
>>351 >>352 Whose translations are easily readable when it comes to dostos works? I don't want literal translation, it should be just fun to read. P&V seemed like blabbercucks who used too much jargon. What does this board think?
