I am a technology journalist with India's premiere technology magazine group Electronics For You. Besides, I am also a fiction writer. My approach has been to educate people about the issues related to technology that directly affect our lives. I also focus my work on warning people of the unskilled handling of technology. I am a radical and don't follow traditional norm which plague us.

Science Fiction In India

I have been a great SF lover. Being a literature student, SF fascinated me more because it takes us to the next level of human experiences -- the next dimension. Owing to my science and literature background I was able to connect Marx to HG Wells and George Orwell to Asimov. I found the darkness of Nietzsche and Kafka in the depression of The Time Machine. And that I felt was a perfect blend.

I never thought about it, but why not, if you look at holywood movies like "The day after tomorrow" . I think SF is just a genre and is as concerned with contemporary issues as any kind of literature...

Hi Swapnil,

I can't see what post you're talking about?

my opinion
It depends on the specific topic you communicate
if your story is too far from people's reality, you will miss your communication objectives. and probably create the opposite effect "that's science fiction, it will never happen"
Al gore film on climate change has much more impact than the fiction one (don't remember the title) 2 years ago
