Atomic Habits by James Clear

One of the interesting books I read this year is Atomic Habits by James Clear. Actually I am not a big fan of self-help, self-improvement books. Certainly not the TED Talk type preaching.

My Favorite Khan – Salim Khan

Among the three Khans - I like Aamir and Salman. I don't like Shah Rukh much, and the liking for him is diminishing every year.
