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."

मोर्गमधून बाहेर आणलेल्या चि त्र्यं खानोलकरांना बघून सदानंद रेगेंना झालेला शोक ....The Lamentation Over the Dead C T Khanolkar

#चित्र्यंखानोलकर   #सदानंदरेगे  #येशूख्रिस्तमृत्यू    #JusepedeRibera

सदानंद रेगे : "... लहानपणापासून मला ... त्याच (येशूचं) जे आहे... चरित्र आहे... त्या चरित्राचे मला विलक्षण आकर्षण ... 'बायबल' माझं आवडतं पुस्तक आहे...."
(पृष्ठ ४८-४९, 'अक्षर गंधर्व/ सदानंद रेगे: मुलाखत-डायरी-पत्रे', प्र. श्री. नेरुरकर, १९८७)

Fyodor Dostoevsky, ‘CRIME AND PUNISHMWENT’, 1866  translated by Constance Garnett:
“…“Then you believe in the New Jerusalem, do you?”
“I do,” Raskolnikov answered firmly; as he said these words and during the whole tirade which preceded them he kept his eyes on one spot on the carpet.

“And . . . and do you believe in God? Excuse my curiosity.”
“I do,” repeated Raskolnikov, raising his eyes to Porfiry.
“And . . . do you believe that Lazarus rose from the dead?”
“I . . . I do. Why do you ask all this?”
“You believe it literally?”
The Lamentation Over the Dead Christ, early 1620s

Artist : Jusepe de Ribera

Jonathan Jones, The Guardian: "The brutal realism of this painting is disconcertingly modern. It looks as if it could have been painted by Courbet or Manet. In fact, it was painted in 17th-century Naples, where Ribera mixed Spanish severity with Caravaggio’s hard-hitting street style. His almost sensual lingering over the corpse of Christ is typical of the strange genius of this macabre visionary."

हे पाहून आणि वाचून रेगेंची आणि त्यांच्या चि त्र्यं खानोलकरांच्या मृत्यू-एप्रिल २६ १९७६- नंतर केलेल्या कवितेची.आठवण आली ... रेगेंना आशा आहे, मृत खानोलकरांचा चेहरा पाहून आणि त्यांच्या येशूच्या प्रेमापोटी, की ते अजूनही जिवंत होतील, लाझारस सारखे...

" ...

मोर्गचं दार उघडून
बाहेर आलास
तेव्हा तुला फुटला होता
चेहरा लझारसचा
अन् हसत होतासही तसाच
त्याच्यासारखाच थेट...
केव्हा हसावं
हे अखेर तुला
कळलं होतं तर!
 (कविता शब्द सौजन्य : अवंती कुलकर्णी यांचे फेसबुक पेज) 

अर्थात इथे, ह्या चित्रात, चार दिवसांनी लाझारसला जिवंत करणाराच मृत्यमुखी पडला आहे....
