Arturo Uslar Pietri
“A mí me tocó ser adolescente en el tiempo en que se leía a Salgari. Hoy poca gente lo hace y es lástima. Pobre Emilio Salgari, atado al banco de galeote de un editor italiano, produciendo novelas y novelas sin término sobre todo lo que en su tiempo pertenecía a la geografía fabulosa. Del fondo de la memoria me vienen los nombres de su India y su Malasia. Sandokan, Yáñez, Tremal Naik, Kammamuri, los «thugs» asesinos. Una geografía de visiones.

Y también el «Libro de la jungla» de Kipling. Lo que está en alguna parte del nocturno, en invisible abajo, es la jungla de Kipling. Donde el tigre Shere-Kan bosteza y la pantera negra Bagheera se agazapa. La de Naga la cobra y Rikki-Tiki-Tavi la mangosta, la de los lobos de Seoanee y la de Balú el oso y la del consejo de animales y los cantos de las tribus. Los que vamos dentro del monótono tabaco del avión ya no tenemos nada en común con Mowgli, el niño-lobo, y estamos desterrados de por vida de la geografía de Salgari y de la zoología de Kipling.”
Arturo Uslar Pietri, El globo de colores

Harper Lee
“As Kipling said, that’s another story...”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

Amit Chaudhuri
“Its (the Left’s) intensity derives from the fact that it’s a family largely composed of, in a manner of speaking, orphans of bhadralok history (for we hardly hear of the mothers and fathers of party members), brought together not by accident but by idealism and its cousin, ideology. Bonds of orphanhood and kinship are particularly charged (as Kipling showed us in The Jungle Book) when they are self-created, and each party member is probably a bit of everything – mother, father, sibling, friend – to every other member.”
Amit Chaudhuri, Calcutta: Two Years in the City
