I have always been fascinated with human beings and their behaviour- regular and under specific situations. So, it was quite a natural shift in my reading habits too. The last two decades saw me pick up and read a lot of books from the psychology section. Well, it all kind of began when I noticed change in my personal behaviour and that of a few around me. I knew while people called it “maturing with age”, there was more to it. I knew from an early age that our behaviour was influenced by our past, and the way our brain was wired. Till my 20s, I had quite the temper – I would scream, shout and behave quite rash… so much so that people around me said they were scared to talk to me. Anyways, with time my temper has gone away, now I respond, but then I also observe people around me all the time. Infact my favourite thing to do when travelling is watching people around me. Am also constantly trying to decipher people and their behaviour- why they say/do what they do.. What could have happened in their lives that made them this way and more…

Infact, a book I read recently Burn It Down: Women Writing about Anger Book by Lilly Dancyger was such a fascinating read, cos it was all about how anger is perceived in men vs women and stories told by many women around this. So, like this, there are quite a few books I’ve been reading over the last 2 decades or so.
