By C. Radhakrishnan
Spandamapinikale Nandi is based on a scientist’s impatience with all existing social arrangements, and his desperate search for remedies, which takes him beyond rational vistas. Unfortunately, the scientist is not in control over his inventions. He has to remain at the mercy of the morons who control the fate of millions in society. The discussions in the novel return to the universally shared fear that the rulers who have grown accustomed to exploiting the destructive potential of modern technology might one day be tempted to press the last button towards nuclear annihilation. It won the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1989.
