BRAZILIAN SOAP OPERA
Caminho das Indias is the name of the new soap opera produced by TV Globo. It takes place in India and Brasil. In the first chapter there is an explanation of how the castes were created... Time to check your Portuguese!
“The Way of Intelligence” by J. Krishnamurti. It reminded me when I read Plato. It requires lots of attention and patience. I was watching the movie “Hurricane” and Denzel Washington’s character was reading this one.
“(…) My relation to you is based on the thought which I have about you. The relationship is not with you, but with the image that I have.”
