मेघदूत: "नीचैर्गच्छत्युपरि च दशा चक्रनेमिक्रमेण"

G C Lichtenberg: “It is as if our languages were confounded: when we want a thought, they bring us a word; when we ask for a word, they give us a dash; and when we expect a dash, there comes a piece of bawdy.”

Friedrich Nietzsche: “Everybody wants the same, everybody is the same: whoever feels different goes voluntarily into a madhouse.”

Martin Amis: “Gogol is funny, Tolstoy in his merciless clarity is funny, and Dostoyevsky, funnily enough, is very funny indeed; moreover, the final generation of Russian literature, before it was destroyed by Lenin and Stalin, remained emphatically comic — Bunin, Bely, Bulgakov, Zamyatin. The novel is comic because life is comic (until the inevitable tragedy of the fifth act);...”

Werner Herzog: “We are surrounded by worn-out, banal, useless and exhausted images, limping and dragging themselves behind the rest of our cultural evolution.”

John Gray: "Unlike Schopenhauer, who lamented the human lot, Leopardi believed that the best response to life is laughter. What fascinated Schopenhauer, along with many later writers, was Leopardi’s insistence that illusion is necessary to human happiness."

Justin E.H. Smith: “One should of course take seriously serious efforts to improve society. But when these efforts fail, in whole or in part, it is only humor that offers redemption. So far, human expectations have always been strained, and have always come, give or take a bit, to nothing. In this respect reality itself has the form of a joke, and humor the force of truth.”

विलास सारंग: "… . . 1000 नंतर ज्या प्रकारची संस्कृती रुढ झाली , त्यामध्ये साधारणत्व विश्वात्मकता हे गुण प्राय: लुप्त झाले...आपली संस्कृती अकाली विश्वात्मक साधारणतेला मुकली आहे."

करमरकर विरुद्ध करमरकर , २०१८.....Kramer Vs. kramer, 1979

'क्रेमर व्हर्सेस क्रेमर' (Kramer Vs. kramer), १९७९ चा सिनेमा माझ्या वडिलांनी c१९८० साली नाशकात पहिला होता आणि त्यावर त्यांनी 'गावकरी' दैनिकामध्ये अग्रलेख लिहला : 'करमरकर विरुद्ध करमरकर'.

तो लेख माझ्याकडे आत्ता नाही. पण त्यातील एक मुद्दा मला आठवतो  - घटस्फोट आपल्याकडे पण वाढणार आहेत ....आणि तसच झाल.

हे सगळ आठवायच कारण म्हणजे मिसेस करमरकरांनी (मेरिल स्ट्रीप) नी मिस्टर करमरकरांवर (डस्टीन हॉफमन) केलेले आरोप:

"... Take this 1979 interview in Time magazine, in which Meryl Streep described auditioning for a play Hoffman had directed several years earlier. It was apparently the first time they had met. “He came up to me and said, ‘I’m Dustin—burp—Hoffman,’ and he put his hand on my breast,” Streep said. “What an obnoxious pig, I thought.”..."
