Upamanyu Pablo Mukherjee


The concluding chapter looks at the legacy of ‘Nehruvian’ techno-science and non-alignment after the death of Nehru, as well as at the interrogation and mobilization of this legacy in Indian science fiction. It briefly discusses the writings of figures such as Adrish Bardhan, J.V. Narlikar and Vandana Singh to show that modern and contemporary Indian science fiction remain a productive site for critical assessment of assumptions about techno-science, ‘development’ and global culture.

Keywords:   Adrish Bardhan, J.V.Narlikar, Vandana Singh, Aschorjo!, The Return of Vamana, The Woman Who Thought She Was a Planet And Other Stories
