Note making system survey

I am not a very smart person, I cannot remember too many facts. So to get around this, I maintain notes religiously, this allows me to retain lot of knowledge whenever needed, do a quick study of a topic before I get to work on it etc. I have my own elaborate systems to do this (see pic rel). There are a many smart anons here. I want to know how Puranavid, Beyblade bengali, Fashy, Schizo and others manage their knowledge here. Do you guys have a system ? If so, then I would like to know all the details. Every autist detail, what works and why, why do you do things the way you do etc.

Do you read books? Have you read picrel? I am nearing the end, reading about Tipu Sultan. How he converted Hindu men and did unspeakable stuff to their women counterpart. Why is our history full of us being persecuted in our homes? NGL I kinda broke down while reading this book.

Rickson Gracie - Breathe

Finished this book. Though I stopped practising martial arts, I love reading about how the masters got to where they are now. This is a biography. Since he is a man with supreme connection between body and mind, while my own relationship to my body is bad, I thought reading this would give me a different perspective. So far, the book really delivers. Highly recommend.

Gandhi as an author

Those who've actually read Gandhi (instead of taking out-of-context excerpts and larping), what insights have you got? I'm not saying he was a pure-and-perfect guy, sure he has got some major flaws, but I hope that such discussion would be more beneficial and rewarding than the discussions on /b/ or on /pol/.

/sa/ starter kit version 1

So guys, I've made the first version of the /sahitya/ starter kit. The aim of it is to guide the newbies towards the choice of literature we deem important. Books of almost every era is chosen, in a way that they become a good introduction not only to their authors but also to the movements/eras that the authors hail from. (Note that I could've chosen the OG 2 epics, but I didn't as they would've been hard for a newbie. Though I've put Rashmirathi instead of Mahabharata) Any and every feedback is welcome wrt the books chosen, layout, font, etc.

I'm thinking to make one-or-two /sa/ charts. The problem is that I haven't read any Indian book before (except 1 or 2 Ruskin Bond books and some Hindi short stories/poems). The charts will be made in this order:- 1. /sa/ Starter Kit (for a newbie) 2. /sa/ Darshan Shastra (for philosophical books) Tell me which books to include. Any language: Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Indian English, etc., which you deem a classic/outstanding enough to be in the charts. Note: Maximum 10 books per chart only.

Local Library Thread

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?
