quote unquote

If I write about Estonians, then I mean Estonians; but if I write about Indians, I mean Indians. And in a sense, I am an Indian too. I am a Buddhist, and I am simply a man. And, primarily, first of all, a sentient being, a sensitive being. And my poetry is a poetry written by such a being, not simply by an Estonian.
