Spread the Love of Sci Fi

When Nandini shared her views on Sudarshan’s essay on why there is no Sci-fi in India, I requested her to write an article about her views. She chose to do it by writing a review of an anthology she had recently read. Through the review she also shares her view on Sci-fi in India and makes one point again — that Indian languages has a richer wealth of Sci-fi and Fantasy than English in India.

She makes a very interesting observation:

And finally, these are stories where Indian characters are the protagonists – and not because of their “otherness” or exotic traits, but because it is perfectly natural that emerging technology should take place in their milieu.

Hope you enjoy reading this issue and share your opinion with us.
