My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My introduction to Milan Kundera was ‘Slowness‘ and it was chosen entirely for pragmatic reasons – it was short. 662 palabras más

Immortality

I have just started to read Immortality in my Humanities 105 class, and if I’m being completely honest I thought I was going to hate it by just taking one look at the cover. 2.011 palabras más

Hang on to Your Hats, Kids. We're About to Discuss Philosophy.

This past Tuesday, I found myself discussing existentialism in our American Literature class.  I was disappointed that the groups we broke off into did not have very much time to discuss our views or how it corresponds with the literature we were reading.   1.030 palabras más

The Unbearable Lightness of Being (an excerpt)

“Tomas came to this conclusion: making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for shared sleep.” 40 palabras más

नीरस लगता है!

तेरे होने से,
जिंदगी खूबसूरत तो है,
लेकिन साथ है
थोड़ा दर्द और चिंता भी|
जब तू चला जाएगा,
तब बची रहेगी
सिर्फ़ खूबसूरती|

जिंदगी में सिर्फ़ खूबसूरती होना
मुझे नीरस लगता है|

(मिलन कुन्देरा से प्रेरित)
