Amitava Kumar in an interview:

"...it is very difficult to find and then put down words in the right order. Not just the words that describe the people coming out of a train at a crowded station, but the struggle of the self that attempts to place its own ambitions among them. The struggle for the right words is also, then, in a serious sense, the search for an attitude."

I nod, and nod vigorously. Which persona do these words inhabit, right now? What politics are they playing, right now? Are they in dark or in light, and does the dark go with them or grow in them, or does the light dazzle their eyes?
