I'm so glad to introduce you to Lavanya Lakshminarayan, a writer from India. Lavanya was so kind to me as I learned how to pronounce her name and how to interact with her and her culture. I think you'll learn a lot.
Culturally, we discussed a few main points. First, tea and coffee, which I think you'll enjoy for the fun of it. Turning serious, we discussed the caste system, relating to an article from the BBC. Finally, we discussed the issue of Seattle banning caste discrimination, in an article from CNN.
We then turned to her book, The Ten Percent Thief, which you can find at The Nook Bookstore, my favorite indie store to support. Get the ebook format directly from the publisher HERE. You can learn more about Lavanya at her Instagram page and at Twitter.
As usual, I don't make any money from the book's purchase link. However, Coffee in Space is crowd funded, and if you'd like to join those supporting the show, please do so by buying me a coffee at buymeacoffee.com/coffeeinspace! Thank you so much!
