    If you have read Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, try reading Demian. I read Siddhartha a long time ago and could not understand what Hesse was talking about. But Demian, I read about 2 months ago made a lot more sense.

      Hey vamsi,

      Good to see you here. Siddhartha did make sense to me and I liked it. I’ll add Demian to the to-do list!
