The inspiration behind The Reading Social is the story of a Japanese farmer, Masanobu Fukuoka. This man took a piece of barren land and started experimenting with a technique called do-nothing farming. By this, he meant that he would strive to minimize his physical footprint on the farm. He wouldn’t till the soil, or pull out weeds, or use fertilizers or pesticides. His farm looked more like a forest - unorganized and wild, yet people would travel the world just to taste the fruits and scientists would be puzzled about the farm’s productivity; and he would emphatically declare, "nature grows these plants, not me." His job was simply to get out of the way, so nature could do its job.
The Reading Social is not a book club. They say their job is to bring you and your book together, and get out of the way. It’s just an excuse to set aside some time doing what we love doing – reading a book. So head there, bring your own book, grab a meal, get disconnected, read uninterrupted and make new friends.
The next meetup is scheduled on Sunday, October 29, from 09:30 am - 12:30 pm, at the gorgeous Mockingbird Cafe, Mumbai. If you are yet to register, the tickets (inclusive of a delicious breakfast spread) are available here: www.thereadingsocial.org
