“Hell is horn shaped”

“Ladies and Gentlemen…Alas, I have a message from Hell. Hell is horn-shaped. At the bottom are sinners whose sorrows are ending. Then other hells and close to the ground, ours, imagined by the strong heads of Christianity. This inverted ministry is run by a Satan who has become increasingly powerful through the ages, eternally rejuvenated, evolving and increasingly human, even spiritualized. Our play starts here.”
-and thus began “The Devil’s Eye” by Ingmar Bergman.

(No, I don’t have any soft or hard feelings towards any religion particularly. I am just amazed at the way he began the narrative.)

  1. 1859 అంటే అప్పటికి కొత్తగా మనదేశానికి ప్రింటింగ్ వచ్చిన రోజులు కదా. అంతకు పూర్వం మనకి ఆవతారికలే కానీ సూచికలు లేవు. ఇంగ్లీషుపద్ధతిలో పుస్తకాలు అచ్చేయడం మొదలు పెట్టినతరవాత సూచికలలో ఎంతవిషయం చెప్పాలి అన్నది స్పష్టం కాక ఎవరికి తోచినట్టు వారు రాసేరేమోనని నా అనుమానం.
