#24: #BeingCuriousReads - What I'm Reading Right Now
I consume a lot of content on the internet, so every month, I will curate some of the best articles and resources for you. Today's edition covers: ShippingTmrw, Womaning in India, & The Takeaway Club!
Hello, my Being Curious tribe!
It’s another Sunday, another week gone by, and another edition of Being Curious to write.
For the past three weeks, I’ve been sending you food and travel related content through my For the Food (and Travel) newsletter, which is part of the Being Curious brand. Thank you for liking, commenting, and subscribing to these posts.
Now, I don’t think I have ever talked about why I founded a newsletter brand on Substack. It’s because I subscribe to tons of good newsletters on this platform. And once I started writing on Substack, I discovered many more writers and publications. I wanted to be a part of the Substack community.
So, I thought, let’s have a Sunday where I share what I’m reading and why I’m reading it with you. I also plan to curate some great reads and resources for you every few weeks.
Substack newsletters you should check out today:
ShippingTmrw: I initially started reading their comic strips on Instagram and found them hilarious. It’s your one-stop shop for everything related to product management. I made my foray into the world of product and product marketing through a company I worked for previously.
Back then, I never took a conscious decision to learn more about products. But earlier this year, one of my LinkedIn connections, Krishna V, posted about his new venture, All Things SaaS, and I jumped at the opportunity to keep my learning going. That brings me to Krishna’s newsletter on Substack.
The Takeaway Club: Fun fact 1: This one is a podcast and a newsletter. Krishna has been doing these podcasts since over a year now. Fun fact 2: We connected via LinkedIn during the pandemic.
I love his writing style and his choice of guests who range from product and SaaS folks to film critics and podcasts hosts. I promise you will learn something in every edition of the newsletter.
Womaning in India: Where do I even begin with Mahima’s newsletter? She talks about women and everything to do with women and our society. I find myself relating to everything she writes.
It’s witty, humorous, joyful, painful — everything rolled into one. If you haven’t taken the time to understand women and their challenges before, take the time now. There’s never a dull moment when you’re reading Womaning in India.
That’s all for this week, folks!
I hope you enjoy reading each of these newsletters.
P.S. Being Curious is free but not cheap. I spend a few hours every week trying to put this together. If you enjoy reading it, please consider forwarding it to a friend, a family member, or a colleague.

You can also find me on LinkedIn and Twitter, so you can share any thoughts or questions you may have about careers, personal growth, networking, travel and communities. With Being Curious, I’m sharing my experiences and random musings on working abroad, career pivots, personal growth, the passion economy, networking, and more. It’s a way to keep myself accountable in sharing my tips with other people who are struggling or stuck and need that extra nudge. This is an interesting experiment for me, and I can’t wait to see where I go with this.
