savarna roy & Neha Dhupia discuss Post Modern Indian Literature at Brands Impact’s Being Candid Season 3.
Sabarna, who is in his 27th year of employment as Senior Vice President (Business Development) with Electrosteel Group, has keen observation and detailed sketches of the human mind that shine through his literature, proving him to be a literary scientist of sorts who follows no conventions when it comes to soulful writing.
Sabarna said “Post-modern is the time after the advent of the Internet in our daily lives, which radically altered our relationships with each other and the nature surrounding us. I have been writing seriously since 2007, and all my books, in various genres, have been an exploration of different man-woman relationships in the urban milieu. In some of my fictional works, I have also explored alternative sexuality. I have dealt with depression, bitterness, solitude, melancholy, and various other darker emotions through my characters. Sometimes I am labeled as a torch-bearer of unhappy stories. But I believe there is a lot to learn about our lives through unhappy stories because of which, I tell them continuously. I write for adults, and someday, I hope to write happy literature for children and adolescents. At the end of the day, as there is more and more pace picking up in modern-day life and revolutionary changes that social media has influenced us, I find unhappiness all over. On one side, there is hyper-consumerism; on another side, there are hyper-aspirational people, and on another side, there are impoverishment and malnourishment. Sometimes I do not understand how to reconcile these conflicting themes and migrate into happy literature. The discourse in the country is becoming more and more violent.
His extraordinary skill of touching all the right strings in his description of human emotions and characters, his balanced and multifarious take on issues of global importance along with the inspiring work in his domain have helped him gain popularity among people of all age groups.
