Suketu Mehta, in his book Maximum City describes that humans think in two ways to decide who they are -
1. The type of people who are able to answer the question 'Who am I?' and then arrive at the answer to 'Who is not I?'
2. Those who answer 'Who is not I?'; eliminate answers and then arrive at 'Who am I?'
Supposedly Thackeray and the Shiv Sena fall into this category.
Now, my problem is simple: I for certain cannot answer 'Who am I?'. Have lost my mental peace trying to do that. And, answering 'Who is not I?' has resulted in so many eliminations that the very essence of me is blown away!! Hell, something/someone in me is dying everyday; but yet the entity called ME remains seemingly intact. Does Bombay do this to everyone?
Only one solution remains. DEEPAK, STOP LIVING THE BOOKS THAT YOU READ !!!
