Longform Reprints: Playboy Interview: Vladimir Nabokov by Alvin Toffler

…even in a better sense of “science”—as the study of visible and palpable nature, or the poetry of pure mathematics and pure philosophy—the situation remains as hopeless as ever. We shall never know the origin of life, or the meaning of life, or the nature of space and time, or the nature of nature, or the nature of thought.

"The innate Parineeti-ness – that no-bullshit quality, that disarming directness, that ability to transform “dialogue” into matter-of-fact conversation – is reimagined with slightly newer shades, and this performance is another sign that we may be seeing the evolution of a major actor-star, one who can be others even while she’s being herself."

Sherlock

This is my hard drive and it only makes sense to put things in there that are useful. Really useful. Ordinary people fill their heads with all kinds of rubbish. And that makes it hard to get at the stuff that matters.

Hamaari haalat pe kittha rove hai,
aasmaan bhi tu dekh leejo…
ke surkh ho jaavein uski aankhein…
ke surkh ho jaavein uski aankhein bhi,
jaise jaise ye din dhale hai…

Na boloon main toh kaleja phoonke…


Na bolun main toh kaleja phoonke,
Jo bol dhoon toh zabaan jale hain…
Sulag na jaave agar sune woh,
Jo baat meri zabaan tale hain…


Gulzar and Vishal Bhardwaj concoct sheer magic again! Incredible subtlety.

kaal kondu aadum pillai, nool kondu aadum bommai
un kaiyil andha noolaa, nee sollu nandhalala
