It is a brave new world and 1984 is not a story.
What-abouteries and what-ifferies, binary thoughts, -isms, -ists, and lost nuances galore.
Conviction Trumps truth, fiction gratifies, and facts don’t.
Gods are litigants, and humans are judges.
Real numbers are rational-irrational; real people are not.
Emotions and faith run high; humanity runs low.
Social is the media; anti- are the citizens.
When all else fails, we netf(l)ix.
Viswas Nair is an instrumentation engineer who is occasionally triggered enough to write. He dreams of penning a 300-page story that a few will read and be inspired to make a net positive difference in this world.
For Indian writers writing in English, this is a tumultuous time to be alive. Politically and culturally speaking, a lot is happening in our nation today. And these posts are our attempt to decipher, understand, and explore the concept of nationhood. Our writing is a celebration of what it means to belong to a nation that is as diverse and pluralistic as India is. And in this attempt, if we persuade people away from propaganda, we might have just created literature.
Do you think we have?
