The things Rahel saw all the way from Ayemenem to Cochin
My personal homage to Arundhati Roy
Meanwhile I was living in Spain, I had the oportunity to exhibit my photographies in the website of Menosuno, an artistic group (This is the new site http://www.espaciomenosuno.com/). 
Well, everything has change now. The original project was in spanish. This is the project in english.
The story:
I was living in Murcia and I usually found dead animals in the streets between the tiny towns in the rural zone of Murcia, where I was living. I have been bought The God of Small Things in a place in Ventas, in the north of Madrid. 
The book became my Bible. I read every night during the next months. Now I can say some phrases by heart.
I want to share two with you. One phrase sad. One phrase happy. As the life is. Both of them.

"As Estha stirred the thick jam he thought Two Thoughts and the Two Thoughts he thought were these: 
a) Anything can happen to anyone. 
and 
b) It is best to be prepared."

"The secret of the Great Stories is that they have no secrets. The Great Stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They don’t deceive you with thrills and trick endings. They don’t surprise you with the unforeseen. They are as familiar as the house you live in. Or the smell of your lover’s skin. You know how they end, yet you listen as though you don’t. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you won’t. In the Great Stories you know who lives, who dies, who finds love, who doesn’t. And yet you want to know again. That is their mystery and magic."
