I enjoyed it slightly less than I did the first, but it still is a fantastic book. It's one step closer to figuring out Alum and the stranger and my only thing against it was that the anti-religious narrative got very slightly repetitive after a while.(less)

“I have always loved being behind the camera. I love how it sets you apart in a crowd, so that you can float at the edges, pausing only occasionally to capture a moment.
In its own way it’s easier than writing. As a writer, I have to know people, to talk to them, to barge into silences with a dozen of those little lighthearted quips that lead up to a conversation. And even then, they’re guarded around you. Nobody wants their drunken conversation written down somewhere.
Being a photographer is different. People come to you. They smile. They flirt. They make sure you see only their best side. Nobody wants to upset the camera.”
Yudhanjaya Wijeratne, Numbercaste

“Familiarity may breed contempt; but perhaps it would be more truthful to say that familiarity breeds blindness”
Yudhanjaya Wijeratne, Numbercaste

“Discrimination is not just racial now. It’s also about the kind of body parts you have.”

“Funerals are for the living, not for the dead.”
Yudhanjaya Wijeratne, Numbercaste

“This is the Number. It is in the things we do, the people we meet, the ID cards that we carry. It's part of our identities, our credit cards, our social interactions. It takes our influences, our biases, morals, lifestyles and turns them into a massive alternate reality that no-one can escape from. It lives on our phones, in our televisions, in the cards we swipe to enter office. At its best, it’s an exact mirror of how human society actually works - all our greatness, all our petty shallowness, all our small talk and social contacts all codified and reduced and made plain. At its worst, it’s also exactly that. It’s how poor and rich and famous and desirable you are. It’s the backchannel given a name and dragged out into the limelight for everyone to see.”
Yudhanjaya Wijeratne, Numbercaste

“This book is a story, and like all stories, it should be taken with a grain of salt.”
Yudhanjaya Wijeratne, Numbercaste

“We’re going to tell these people that they dropped because Facebook dropped us. We're going to say the Number needs the data and it's their right to share it with us. And we’re going to drop their Numbers again. And again. Until they riot on the Internet and make those Menlo Park motherfuckers come to us with their hats in their hands.”
