Quote of the Day – Paul Theroux

I could see that he enjoyed putting me in the know, because there is a freight of detail in Indian life – an ever-present cargo of dogma, of strictures, of lessons, of distinctions – that turns Indians into monologuers. Their motive seemed pedantic, not to convert you but to exaggerate how little you knew of life.- Paul Theroux in Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, P.184
