From “The Alchemy of Desire”, a novel by Tarun J Tejpal

– You don’t like fat people?

– He said no. Everything should be fitting. Your house should not be bigger than your heart; your bed should not be bigger than your sleep, and your food not a grain more than your stomach.Men should not put an ounce of extra weight on mother earth. The earth is already over burdened by flesh, over burdened by greed, and over burdened by sorrow. When the balance tips over we will have apocalypse.The world is what it is because men have forgotten the difference between right and wrong.So walk slightly my friend, he said.
