KIND OF HINDI: MOTHERHOOD & RELIGION

#GETSOM @dahlia_koca_

This week I decided to sort through some of Audible original titles and I came across a new story from Mindy Kaling entitled “Kind of Hindi”. I found it to be an exciting title as I often make similar comments on my own religious status. I think as adults we are frequently asked about our religion and often can’t find the right words to label exactly what we are. We often give a vague description that starts with what religion we were raised on, we follow up with other religions we have been exposed to, and then end with some final thought of what we kind of are now.

Religion is such a personal experience nowadays that it often leaves mothers confused when it is time to teach and pass on our religion to our children. In this audiobook, Mindy describes her struggles of passing on her religious beliefs even when she doesn’t feel she is that Hindu. The book is funny, light-hearted and truly explains the importance of religion and cultural ties for children. It will have you sitting back and thinking about your own religious choices, culture, and how you want your children to develop their own religion.

“Kind of Hindi” is an Amazon Audible Original Title by Mindy Kaling, 2022

A plate of oysters, and kisses with the flavor of the sea. Enjoy life. Share the best wine on the beach with your friends. Escape the routine. Excite the tongue with distant tastes and textures. Exotic. Vanguard. Calm the carnivorous impulse and sink your fangs into the perfect meat: tender, without resistance, prepared how you like. Get the party started with a bottle of French champagne. Bubbles. Appetites. The night. New desires for the tongue. The awakening. An astounding breakfast for a day full of promise. The myriad flavors of Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel. Try them all.”

STOP WARS: THE VOICE OF CAPITAL BRA

#GETSOM @dahlia_koca_

The invasion of Russia into Ukraine has cut through the hearts of the world as we have had to watch the destruction unfold. This war has reached the hearts of people from across the world and sadly the majority of the world is powerless against the pain that is ripping through Ukraine. Many artists and celebrities have spoken out about their feelings during this time and last month Capital Bra dropped his song entitled “Stop Wars” which features Kontra K and is produced by PAIX. The song currently has 1.6 million views on YouTube, So why has this song touched his fans in such a unique way? This is most likely due to the status of voice Capital Bra holds in Germany, Russia, and Ukraine.

Capital Bra was born in 1994 and spent his first childhood years growing up in Dnipropetrovsk Ukraine before moving to Berlin with his mother in 2000. He started rapping at the young age of 11 and developed his style of East Slavic and Arabic words that would later shake the hip hop world. In 2016 his career started to soar and he has won numerous awards throughout his career. His music has traveled throughout Germany and Europe and his YouTube videos have an astounding amount of views. Some of them topped out at around 80 Million. He clearly has a voice that reaches millions and his Ukrainian roots have had fans looking for his opinion on the war.

The song “Stop Wars” has communicated his thoughts and feelings on the war that is estimated to of killed around 80 thousand lives, 11 million people displaced, and 400 people missing. His lyrics are heartfelt and touching through his experience of the situation that has hit his home.

If only you know how many tears a bullet brings
