Keep away!

A good friend of mine wrote to me about the Mahabharata.
Indian tradition has it that this text is potentially so dangerous that it cannot be stored in the house.
This put my fantasy on fire. I would love to have labels on my books: “Dangerous! Don’t store these books in your house. Keep away!” The belief that literature is good for you just like vitamin C or broccoli is lethal to literature.
