[The] Geosophy newsletter is a cornucopia of interesting facts & stories about India, the earth, history, myths, and everything in between. And almost everything in it is stuff I either didn't know or hadn't pondered deeply enough about. So glad I've subscribed.

What a delight to read this is. I've always followed geology podcasts and was searching for one by Indian scientists. So excited this newsletter exists!
