Books, Book markers and Life

Posted by Vish Mangalapalli on October 6, 2019

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 ! ”
