Loved and enjoyed the episode. 😊congrats Hrishi and Navin. All the time I kept on remembering Hrishi’s childhood poem on history. It goes like this…. the subject of history, is more like a mystery, a mystery which can not be solved… don’t remember the fourth line now😄😄.

Hahaha 4th grade poem:

“History

The subject of history
Is more of a mystery
A mystery that can’t be solved
A truth that must be sought,
A gift that must be bought…
Bought from the past,
By the present,
For the future.”

– Rishi
