The human back can become the seat of more aches and pains than are registered in books for the composite anatomy of the regiment. It is a limited area but it can become the theater of innumerable muscular conflicts, tangles, wrenches, knots and other comforts ! ”

—- From the story “The Open Boat” by Stephen Crane

Ask me ! Ask me ! Ask me ! Ask me ! I will tell you what I have gone through a couple of years back but could never express it like the above.

How unwittingly prophetic the following sentence written on a book marker is turning out to be: ” I do not look for life in books; I find it there ! ”
