Good intro books for Hindi/Panjabi

Will be teaching Hindi at my local university for extra credits and also to grow myself, the only issue is that I am currently not a very good teacher. The students are picking it up. Only issue is I am hitting a barrier in their reading. They now know Devanagari script but it takes them a while to read each word. I think the next step is to get their reading stronger by practice like I did with English. I don't know any good introductory good books that aren't super boring though. Maybe simple children's books? Ideally one with a little story not just boring like "I ate an apple today, it was tasty. Then I went to sleep". I can't think of any off the top of my head. I am also teaching Panjabi, the resources are shorter on that side too but there's lots of literature, any direction any anons can point me in? Thanks and love you all.

Why don't Vedic slokas rhyme?

I always imagined that cultures move from strictly rhyme-based poetry to free-verse poetry. But I can't see a single Vedic sloka that rhymes. Take for example the Gayatri Mantra. It doesn't rhyme. Now of course I don't deny their poetry. They have a strict meter. But the only (occasional) rhymes I've found in these slokas are inside the lines, that too I guess by coincidence. The only non-Bhakti movement sloka/stuti from ancient times that also rhymes, is Ranganath Ashtakam. > picrel, first verse of Ranganath Ashtakam

Good resources for Indian aesthetics?

[from Wiki] Aesthetics is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of art, beauty, and taste, with the creation and appreciation of beauty. Given India's contribution to the arts during the Vedic and Medieval period, what are some resources I can read to gain more knowledge on the aforementioned? I know about Nāṭya Śāstra (but dunno about any reliable translations) and some works by M Hiriyana. Is there anything else I should read? Also give a good translation for Natyashastra.

How to proceed to write an epic fanfic?

There's a very niche subculture where I live. This subculture at present, is in shambles, much like the lives of the people involved in it. I want to write the story of this subculture through my and my friends' eyes. We all want to write about it in a parody magical realist fanfic-esque way. However the scope is very large, as it covers the lives of the people involved too. There shall be numerous references to things like Macbeth, French New Wave etc. . What shall I do to make this passion-project of sorts into reality? How should I structure my thought process? This may very well be late night motivation or something but it's very interesting to chronicle something I've spent half my life in. Something I can un-pretentiously write.

Why has Indian intellectualism degraded so much?

Our pre and early post-independence aspirations were inherently tied educated discussions of politics. Our films, art, theater were riddled with such ideas. The name for IPTA (Indian People's Theater Association), was literally suggested by Homi Bhabha (yes, the nuclear scientist), who was in turn inspired by French philosopher Romain Rolland. Can you imagine an Indian stem-bhangi being so profoundly literate today? We were not only inspired by socialism, Marxism etc, but also our own cultural history. Bongs , Punjabis knew their shit. Even poets like Nagarjun from Bimaru states knew their language, it's socio-cultural ramifications and its present state. How did this all change so suddenly? Was it due to the end of Soviet-support due to USSR's dissolution? Was it due to Liberalization and loads of Westoid inspired shit, pornography, songs and "wannabes" that came in? Present-day intellectuals are blind towards reality. They don't know anything other than bookish contents that they've branded enough in their brains. Tell me /sa/, what went wrong?

This is probably the best book in English you can read about (especially bengai) revolutionaries. Suggest some more if you know. The biggest source on the lives of the revolutionaries are memoirs of people close to them. Unfortunately most of them are in Bengali (at least when it comes to bengali revolutionaries). Another one in English I've read is 'The life and times of Bagha Jatin' written on Jatindranath Mukherjee by his grandson.

post ~literally me~ literature

The problem now and it was a new one for me was my dick. It probably sounds strange now, but in the Seventies nobody really cared how big their dick was. When I was a teenager I had every conceivable hang-up about my body except that. I don't know who started it -queers probably, though you find it a lot in American cop shows, but there's no mention of it in Sartre. Whatever, in the showers at the gym I realized I had a really small dick. I measured it when I got home - it was five inches maybe five and a half or six if you measured right to the base. I'd found something new to worry about, something that I couldn't do anything about it was a permanent handicap. It was round about then that I started to hate blacks. There weren't many of them in the school most of them went to the Lycee Pierre-de-Coubertin where the eminent Defrance did his philosophical strip-tease and propounded his pro-youth filth. I only had one in my A stream class, a big, stocky guy who called himself Ben. He always wore a baseball cap and a pair of Nikes; I was convinced he had a huge dick. All the girls threw themselves at this big baboon and here I was trying to teach them about Mallarme what the fuck was the point? This is the way the world ends, I thought bitterly, people worshipping in front of big dicks, like hamadryas baboons. This black guy was going out with the girl I would have chosen myself blonde, very pretty, with a child like face and small firm tits. They were always holding hands in class. I always kept the windows closed while they were working the girls would get hot and take off their jumpers, their tee shirts stuck to their breasts; hidden behind my desk, I'd jerk off. >t.
