First Anniversary Giveaway!




Academic-ish will soon be completing a year! Our first ever reading and discussion session (on BR Ambedkar's Labour & Parliamentary Democracy) was held on 10th May, 2020. We're living in difficult times and we wanted to take this opportunity to share a little joy. We got together with Pagdandi, an independent bookstore in Pune, and curated an Instagram books giveaway so you can be a part of this milestone with us!
