Santha Rama Rau
“... it is in the oral traditions of the villages that the arts of India are really alive. The brief Western immortality of museums is pointless to people who have seen eternity in their earth.”
“... to the Indian, politics are what the weather is to an Englishman. Politics are an introduction to a stranger on a train, they are the standard filler for embarrassing silences in conversation, they are the inevitable small talk at any social gathering.”
“India was ... a country filled for the most part with people who live so close to the necessities of existence that only important things are important to them.”
Santha Rama Rau, Indian writer, journalist
(1923 - 2009)
