Choice of Indian youths in literature and art has changed today. This change didn’t happen all of a sudden. It is a gradual process that eventually unfolded. External experiences impressed the internal mechanism of intellect and the changes began to exhibit in behaviours, conversations and choices. What do Indian youths like today in cinema? Romance, extreme violence and darkness. Likewise, the choices in literature have also diverted from simple and happy-ending fiction to clumsy and confused notion of poetic justice. However, these modern authors are cunning and they make the most of this changing choice of the readers. They make their works interesting, intriguing and offer what the readers want. And that’s why the crime thrillers that we read in the book are translated into cinema in future.
Ravi Dabral, one of the best crime thriller novelists in India who gained his fame after the publication of his debut work in fiction – Greed Lust Addiction – believes that authors must not confuse the changing choice of readers with an absolute form of freedom to write anything and serve. Ravi believes that even in writing crime thrillers, an exciting genre within the fiction supergenre, a writer can be careful and visionary to add the elements that would not only entertain the readers but also make them aware of the facts and realities that might help them think or do better. Likewise, in his book, Greed Lust Addiction, readers find an entertaining and thrilling story as well as many lessons for life.
And I concur with the thoughts of Ravi. Moreover, if the authors begin to offer deep fiction instead of shallow entertainment that sounds like bells without rhyme, the reading ecosystem will certainly get better choices to make. There are authors who are trying to offer meaningful fiction in an entertaining and exciting way – crime thriller with a purpose. I will certainly take the name of Ashwin Sanghi. He tells the tales that are so meaningful and amazing to read. His ways are youthful so that young readers also feel great reading his novels and it’s the demand of the hour – if you want to remain relevant, you have to do the things that make sense to the people you live with.
