What did I read in 2009

I wrote same post last year. Its been a year. Time to write again.

Later last year I got the habit of taking notes, goggling more and discussing the topics I read too. Thank to my friends Rajaram, Abhijit, Somesh, Sharath who told me what reading is really. The whole point is to understand.


1)What is mathematics really? Reuben Hersh says that maths is a social science. I should thank Infosys for getting this book in our library on my request. Its a good book on philosophy of mathematics.

2)White Tiger : Read this book during holiday in Goa.

3) Weirdos in the Workplace : What is weirdness? Who can afford to be weird. What does weirdness bring in?

4)Sriramkrishna, Charitra Ani Upadesh



7)Kar Ke Dekho : An excellent book. Do it first. A great collection of speeches given by great people in Pune.


9)Marathi Vdymayacha Galiv Ithihas : Awesome book by Pu La Deshpande. What a great book it is.

10)Baki Shunya : Kamlesh Walawalkar tells the story of a bright intelligent person. Remember Kosla.

20)Banker to the Poor : Paisa wasul. Microfinance start up manual. Too good a book.

27)Vichar Tar Karal : Narendra Dabholkar of Andhasharaddha Nirmulan Samiti, asks many questions which make me think.

28)Prakashwata : Dr. Prakash Amte journey of life. Gave this book as the Bhavubij to my sister Sharadha.

32) Jyotiba Phule Ani Stri Mukticha Vichar : Dr Gale Amwhet tells how Mahatma Jyotirao Phule was a leader way ahead in deeds and thoughts.
