Is SARS-CoV-2 here to stay, the era of information overload, and more: Here's what's trending on ScrollStack this week

This week, Theindianstatement wrote about the 2020 documentary Colette that won the Oscar for best documentary at the 93rd Academy Awards. "The prisoners lived a nightmare there, been in hell for all those days by suffering from that life. It turns out that death was actually a redemption to them – this truth will last in your mind after watching this documentary," they wrote in a post titled 'Memory of a historical tragedy through a sister's eyes'.

Ridhi Malhotra, who runs the Books and Authors Bulletin on ScrollStack, interviewed the author of Unboxed!: My American Life, Jayanthi K. Manikandan, who spent 14 years in the US before returning to India, and the book chronicles her journey through that time. "I always think people in India look at the USA (or maybe any foreign country) with rose-tinted glasses. There is “rose” there alright, but in different places than where you would expect to see," the author said.

Journalism student Faiz Ahmed Siddiqui, who is among our top creators, wrote about 'The misplaced priorities of Indian media and emergence of international media as a saviour' while in the latest episode of the 'EPEDIMIC' podcast, Dr. Celine Gounder spoke with experts about how SARS-CoV-2 might evolve and whether or not it’s here to stay.

In a 'musician's review' of Chaitanya Tamhane's The Disciple, Srijan Deshpande wrote: "Chaitanya Tamhane makes me jealous. Like his protagonist Sharad, my own induction into the universe of Hindustani music was one of rapture, of an overwhelming sense of awe at the depth and the magnificence of this tradition that I had somehow been included in."
