‘For this is what we do. Put one foot forward and then the other. Lift our eyes to the snarl and smile of the world once more. Think. Act. Feel. Add out little consequence to the tides of good and evil that flood and drain the world. ….. For as long as fate keep waiting, we live on. God help us. God forgive us. We live on’-this was the last paragraph from shantaram.
I finally finished the book.Started it in the airport waiting to catch the flight from bombay to dallas.Its been 15 months and 22 days.I am not a slow reader…noone can be that slow.One reason is that i hardly read anymore.More importantly i did not want to finish this book.This kept my memories of bombay alive.Life is all about the memories you have.That is what this book will be to me and the reason for posting this paragraph here is to keep it alive.
