बाबा बोर्हेस

कविता लिखने के उतने तरीक़े, गुण-धर्म या सिद्धांत हो सकते हैं, जितना कि दुनिया-भर में कवि.

Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.

Every time I'm faced with a blank page, I feel that I have to rediscover literature for myself. I have given a major part of my life to literature and I can offer you only doubts.

सवेरे बोर्हेस को देख कर तबियत खुश हो गयी.यह भी एक बोर्हियन समय है कि इन दिनों मैं उनकी कहानी Gospel according to Mark के सम्मोहन में हूं.

We are such stuff as dreams are made of, said Shakespeare.The constantly derivative Borges (one writer whose entire writing is impossible without other writers, and if I could speak like him, a librarian in a writer's guise)makes two changes here: the plural 'we' is replaced by 'I'and stuff is substance. Now that 'I' is dead, is the substance also dead?

Or its I that is dead, Borges is alive :)

Nice post.
