0. No ‘Indian’ scifi?? Well, here’s some. Putting in one thread the #NWWonFD pieces (so far) on Indian SF (SF frm India/by Indian authors)
1. On the ‘scientifiction’ of Jayant Narlikar who’s(also) written perhaps only scifi tale with test cricket #NWWonFD factordaily.com/science-fictio…
3. On Begum Rokeya’s Hossain's story of Ladyland, written a decade before Charlotte Gilman's Herland #NWWonFD
4. On the scientist JC Bose’s prize-winning scifi story that used 'butterfly effect', ages before Bradbury #NWWonFD
5. The full saga of Satyajit Ray’s unmade #scifi film involving Clarke, Sellers & a skin-diver-turned-swami #NWWonFD
6. On the Ketan Mehta-directed 90s @DDNational scifi serial with the superhero Captain Vyom #NWWonFD
7. Bonus1: Not from India or by an Indian, but steeped in Indian-ness: @iannmcdonald’s River of Gods #NWWonFD
8. Bonus2: Again, not from India, but uses its caste system & Buddha as metaphor- Zelazny’s Lord of Light #NWWonFD
