No Regrets by Kaveree Bamzai

Today’s priorities should be reflective of tomorrow’s regrets that you don’t want.

No Regrets: The Guilt-Free Women’s guide to a Good Life by Kaveree Bamzai is truly a life-saving book for women who have been caught up with the fast-moving life so much that they have forgotten to live for themselves, to take a break, to love themselves, to think of themselves before anyone else.

  – Trevor Noah, Born a Crime
The story is around the time of apartheid South Africa which was a terrible time for black people. Trevor Noah was born a crime because he was neither black not white, he was both.
