Pocket Diary – 13

I am working on some artworks for #amwriting series and other concepts. Already trashed two pieces half-way in – 3hr effort wasted. So , I will be posting something from the pocket diary. 🙂

Nehru speaking to the villagers who were to be displaced by Hirakund dam, 1948
“If you are to suffer, you should suffer in the interest of the country”.

wait one more on Dams

Morarji Desai, public meeting of Pong Dam submergence area, 1961
” We will request you to move from your houses after the dam comes up. If you move it will be good. Otherwise we shall release the waters & drown you all”.

The next line of leaders had something else in mind in the matters of country,even their country’s concept got changed. Yeah first one is from congress & the other one is from a non-congress man.Although, they had the same answer for the tribals & the villagers. ” Get the hell out or drown ”
By the way – do you agree with them. Some part of me does agree to the logic but it assumes a noble & honest world.

Tom Schulman “Any writer who has the ability to take off from the real world as well as indulge in fantasy can create stories of mass interest”.

I was watching Dead Poet’s Society(again) when this line came. It was insightful – mass interest is an enigma to engage with & hope for the right response, it is puzzling in case of stories at least.

Napoleon “Trade space for time”.

Get it?
let me help you – “Space is recoverable, time is not”.
Still nothing?
You should use your time wisely instead of throwing it away collecting materials/objects/income…
Read it in one of the blog post. Sorry don’t have the link. 😛

Anupam Kher “Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets & makes night air smell better”.

Read it in one of his RTd tweet. It made sense to me as I appreciate my ‘alone’ time. The imagination is beautiful & subtle.

That will be all.

Arigato 🙂
