Quote of the Day – Schindler’s List

We give you a Jewish girl at five marks a day, Oskar. You should kiss us, not them. God forbid you ever get a real taste for Jewish skirt, there’s no future in it. They don’t have a future. That’s not just good old fashioned Jew hating talk. It’s policy now.
– SS officer Julian Scherner to Oskar Schindler after Schindler’s arrest for kissing a Jewish girl

    Hmm.. This excerpt was found on the covers of the book, “The schindler’s Ark” [Novel, on which the film is based on].

    I decided to read novel, before watching the movie. 🙂

    We haven’t read the book. But the above quote is at the very end of side A of the DVD.

    How odd that an assh*le like you should come up with such a nice quote (from Samuel Langhorne Clemens a.k. Mark Twain).

    BTW, Mark Twain traveled extensively in India in the late 19th century – Delhi, Bombay, Benares, Allahabad, Calcutta, Lucknow, Lahore (then part of India) et al.

    In his travelogue, Mark Twain wrote:

    So far as I am able to judge nothing has been left undone, either by man or Nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. “Where every prospect pleases, and only man is vile.”

    We’re going to the library in a little while to pick up Mark Twain’s book on his Indian travels: Following the equator: a journey around the world .

    Watched Neeson’s masala flick “Taken” last night.. passable if you are looking for an action fix – which I wanted. mediocre otherwise. I couldn’t stand the fact that made a 26 year old known face(Maggie Grace from “Lost”) masquerade as a 17 year old.. (Trisha looked more believable as a 17 year old in “Abhiyum Naanum”) more annoying than watching the 57 year old Neeson beating up 20 thugs with guns.

    Neeson is not a bad actor.

    Trisha? Don’t ruin our Brunch at Old Country Buffet.

    Have you tried it?

    Hmm…, I was surprised to know sometime back that, even Che Guevera visited India once [Ignore if you know it already].

    This is what he reportedly wrote (in an official article) after his visit to India – “Nehru welcomed us with the friendly familiarity of a patriarchal grandfather, but with noble interest for the concerns and struggles of the Cuban people and made recommendations of extraordinary value, while showing samples of an unconditional affection towards our cause”

    But an excerpt found in the book “Che Guevera” by Jon Lee Anderson, says otherwise. Read the other perspective of the same incident here (I have uploaded the book’s excerpt in a image format)


    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    1. Interesting…the different perspectives.

    There was a nearly 40-year age difference between Che and Nehru.

    Che was still young, with the revolutionary fervor. Nehru was in the evening of his life, the ‘autumn of the patriarch.’ Waiting to reach his maker.

    Also, Nehru was a Fabian Socialist while Che was a Change-here-and-now Marxist. It’s hard to believe there could be a ‘connection’ or ‘meeting of minds’ between the two.

    We didn’t know Che was in India. Thanks.

    2. An informative piece on Che: http://www.thehindu.com/fline/fl2513/stories/20080704251305200.htm

    3. Jon Lee Anderson is a well known author, who writes for the New Yorker (which we read regularly). In a recent issue, he wrote about the violent gangs in Rio.

    In the actual form, found on the covers the book – “The schindler’s Ark” – [By Thomas Keneally, Booker prize winning novel], it reads as below.

    “Jokes aside, Oskar, my dear fellow, you’d be a fool if you got a real taste for some little Jewish skirt. They don’t have a future Oskar. That’s not old-fashioned Jew-hate talking, I assure you. It’s policy.”

    [I feel it sounds better in its original form.]

    We’ll read the book one of these days.

    Trisha gets the highest pay in Telugu after Illeana.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    1. It’s 6:59AM here on the East Coast and we don’t a bad beginning to our day.

    So, no mention of that Hidimbi oops Trisha thing here. Yeeks.

    2. We haven’t seen any of that Ethiopian Illeana’s movies.

    Too skinny. All bones and no flesh. She needs to go on a diet of Big Macs. 😉
