Are there people you know who are not words?’ A cancer survivor wreaks vengeance on the world, a builder erects the Taj Mahal of public toilets, a woman buys a treadmill for her depressed pet, a husband’s life is hijacked by his wife’s nightmares, a matrimonial advertisement says it like it really is. Autoplay explores the futuristic, semi-dystopian Hindu Aryan Republic of India. G. Sampath’s stories work at the level of the pre-conscious, verbal kites waving their never-ending tails in the sky of consciousness.

This is adventurous new fiction, exploring the themes of marriage, adolescence, love, terrorism, technology, consumerism and other familiars through feeling-eyes.
