Reem With A View

"Names and attributes must be accommodated to the essence of things, and not the essence to the names, since things come first and names afterwards." – Galileo

Mumbai City Snippet

“If you’re late for work…and you reach the station just as the train is leaving the platform, you …find many hands stretching out to grab you on board, unfolding outwards from the train like petals… at the moment of contact, they do not know if the hand that is reaching into theirs belongs to a Hindu or Muslim or Christian or Brahmin or untouchable, or whether you were born in this city or arrived only this morning…Come aboard they say, we’ll adjust…”

Suketu Mehta – “Maximum City”
