Maybe Another Day , a deeply disturbing sample of existential fiction, has won several awards including Sahitya Akademi Award.
What unfolds in the novel is a Kurukshetra war between good and evil. On the one side are well-meaning men and women of science prepared to go to any length to see their dream take shape. On the other, we have evil men of opportunistic politics, their henchmen, the so-called scientists they have managed to woo to their side with material incentives and the award-reward carrot.
The sad smile on the face of the muse suggests that no war ever leads to happiness for anyone. The rare depths of the tragic smile are explored in this novel.
