“The poem wants to know why the moon is sliced in half on some days and why it‘s a circle in other days. The worst thing about the poem is that it doesn‘t answer it‘s own question.”
Deepa Anappara, Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line

“Believe me,' the badshah says, 'today or tomorrow, every one of us will lose someone close to us, someone we love. The lucky ones are those who can grow old pretending they have some control over their lives, but even they will realize at some point that everything is uncertain, bound to disappear forever. We are just specks of dust in this world, glimmering for a moment in the sunlight, and then disappearing into nothing. You have to learn to make your peace with that.”
Deepa Anappara, Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line

“What is a whole life if you die when you’re still a child? Is your whole life whole or half or zero?”
Deepa Anappara, Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line
