Satanic Verses

'To be born again,' sang Gibreel Farishta tumbling from the heavens, 'first you have to die'

Opening lines of Satanic Verses. Not bad. Not bad indeed.

‘To land upon the bosomy earth, fisrt one needs to fly’


‘How to ever smile again, if first you won’t cry?’

Now you know why I like Salman Rushdie the way I do.

‘How to win the darling’s love mister, without a sigh?’

Ah- a thousand sighs. I hope he loves me.

Ok- so I finally got the book. But only this one. Wonder why people ask me what I want when they anyway buy me what they want. Ah- ungrateful as always.

I am thrilled actually. And when in a state of acute happiness, I cannot react.
