  • My first story, and I have a wish for this space of mine:

    Let passion be the quality of everything - let it be in our speech, in our writings, our fingers, our thoughts, let it be the core of our being, our bodies should burn inside out, like a slow flame licking the edges of a page. Like a contemporary Indian philosopher once said about questioning and criticism: '...the head...should be on fire.’
