It is time to brag a little. To prove my ability to fight through adversity and win! Much like returning from battle with a token of victory, I am surfacing with my favourite quote from Midnight’s Children and from the last eighth of the book no less.
Also. I might say that it adequately sums up the entire book, so if you weren’t wanting to read it: You’re welcome.
Who what am I?
I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I’ve gone which would not have happened if I had not come.
Nor am I particularly exceptional in this matter; each “I,” every one of the now-six-hundred-million-plus of us, contains a similar multitude.
I repeat for the last time: to understand me, you’ll have to swallow a world.
Now all I need to do to finish the process is watch the movie.
