You are carried away by appearances - myclaws and fangs and the glowing eyes frighten you no doubt. I dont blameyou. I dont know why God has chosen to give us this fierce make-up, thesame God who has created the parrot, the peacock, and the deer, whichinspire poets and painters. I would not blame you for keeping your distance— I myself shuddered at my own reflection on the still surface of a pondwhile crouching for a drink of water, not when I was really a wild beast, butafter I came under the influence of my Master and learnt to question, Whoam I? Dont laugh within yourself to hear me speak thus. Ill tell you aboutmy Master presently." - Author: R.K. Narayan
