Nishi Chawla's novel, "The Twist Of Truth" (2001) is a mix of political, historical, and philosophical fiction. It tries to explore the relationship between one's religious convictions and one's sense of social responsibility and the gap between the two. It is a philosophical / historical novel about a taxi driver who is returning from self-exile in Canada, and who, on his flight back home, recollects how he got drawn into the Sikh separatist movement. The novel raises questions about how one man's terrorist is another man's patriot.
A HUMAN SILICON CHIP
Nishi Chawla's second published novel, "A Human Silicon Chip" (2003) tries to capture the philosophical underside of the information revolution even as it traces the boom and bust of the dot com era. This is not a defining portrait of a young man caught in the gold rush of the Silicon Valley boom years. There is no conscious portrayal of the physical or mental characteristics of any single entrepreneur who contributed to this boom. The aim of the writer is to evoke the philosophical underpinnings of the whirlwind that arose in the decade of the nineties in the Silicon Valley. The excitement involved with accomplishing anything, the visceral power of human cupidity, and the distant rumble of sibling rivalry, is all that this story is about. There is no further meta message. The novel aims to evoke the philosophical underpinnings of the whirlwind that arose in the nineties in the Silicon Valley. This story is about sibling rivalry in the excitement involved with accomplishing anything in this environment. The plot is predicated on the sibling rivalry between two brothers, Kabir and Suvir, as one makes it big in the Silicon Valley, and the other brother drifts unanchored, in the tough world of higher education.
