🗒️ On Note-making
Casual chats in the Cubbon Book Club about note-taking methods, Zettelkasten etc have inspired the creation of a WhatsApp subgroup dedicated to "Note Taking."

P.N.K Panicker possesses a ghost-gifted talent for weaving ghost stories. His son, Suresh Eriyat, an acclaimed animator, collaborated with Adithi Krishnadas to transform this talent into a remarkable piece of art—a captivating animated short film titled Kandittund (Seen It!). It's no surprise that this masterpiece earned the National Award for Best Animation Film. Don't miss the making video or the conversation between Suresh & Panicker; Kesavapanicker's storytelling is truly worthy of an Oscar, a Nobel, and a Booker all rolled into one!
