Book cover for Coming Out as Dalit: A Memoir
Our Dalitness is imprinted onto us through the burned bodies of our children, suicides of our PhD scholars and college students, rapes of young girls and women, asphyxiation of our manual scavengers and ‘honour killings’ of lovers.
Han Kang
“Look, sister, I'm doing a handstand; leaves are growing out of my body, roots are sprouting out of my hands...they delve down into the earth. Endlessly, endlessly...yes, I spread my legs because I wanted flowers to bloom from my crotch; I spread them wide...”
Han Kang, The Vegetarian

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Andy Weir
“Anything, Tim?” “Totally,” he replied. “But we’re staring at this black screen because it’s way more interesting than pictures from Mars.” “You’re a smart-ass, Tim,” Venkat said. “Noted.”
Andy Weir, The Martian

Rupi Kaur
“we have been dying
since we got here
and forgot to enjoy the view

- live fully”
Rupi Kaur, the sun and her flowers

Rick Riordan
“Is that me?,' Leo said. 'Like me--having this dream--looking at me having a dream?”
Rick Riordan, The Lost Hero
