Introducing Snippets

Simply put snippets are short stories with pictures. Some time ago I started writing twitter threads with highlights and a link to stories on this blog. These threads subsequently expanded to include other stories for which a detailed write up was not needed. Snippets are those twitter threads recomposed for this website. Don’t have time to read full blogs, checkout snippets for an appetite on history, folklore and more. Check them out below or look for Snippets in categories.
