Book Review: Title is Untitled: Santosh Avvannavar, Kundan Srivastava, Raghunath Babu Are



Title is Untitled by Santosh Avvannavar, Kundan Srivastava, Raghunath Babu Are has many arguments from the social obligation to pretensions to the demystification of the modern society, and the representation of women with numerous references, direct and indirect, to the ongoing struggles against rape, child marriage, dowry, taboos, human trafficking, fake degrees,  beggary to fake institutions.

The human race is certainly going through one of the worst, if not the worst in recorded history. The causes are identified on the one hand absurd lifestyle that characterizes humanity in the developed and advanced, where they aspire strong economic growth with the book analyze these problems at all levels, economic, social, psychological, spiritual, religious etc.

It is equally true that the millennia of cultural, ethical, religious scaffolding have produced a change of manners and common sense of morality in most human social groupings but these are a taboo. Subjects on which there is a deafening silence as this book speaks of dreams, as you might guess, except that for the first time these dreams are analyzed to look for omens, but to discover a part of our personality, which is hidden from our conscious perception and that emerges in the thoughts and emotions of the night.

In the book you can find a considerable number of examples from the personal experience of the authors as this book is thus a thinker without dogmas and especially without illusions, that sees human society as a building much needed and valuable as fragile, since it places in its basis the repression of instincts and reduces man to be a sick animal.

Let's face it our society entrenched in their ivory towers and their privileges, do not read anything. Nothing detailed and documented. And let alone if it comes from the tracks of the political or morally correct! At the limit, they lend themselves as actors and testimonial of one of the unreal and false antithetical positions that characterize all that revolves.

Written in a simple style, the book can be called a disclosure document, almost a manifesto for the ease with which the words flow, the characteristic pace with which ideas are exposed almost as if it were a novel. The voices of the authors are reconciled in perfect harmony and it is clear that it was done a thorough job in an effort to bring together their ideas in a wise book where the item is consistent from beginning to end.

Completed and enriched by a series of eyewitness accounts, the reader discovers that Title is Untitled  is not only the title of a book, but a real movement that aims to raise awareness of the society on the issue of care for people and a movement born from the need to make their voices heard, to tell the world the stories of these people, the difficulties encountered in the journey of their discovery of their own.

The picture is patchy and contradictory, but one is the fundamental fact, the elephant in the room that is never discussed that has little or nothing to lose and is ready for just about anything the winning player of a game in which everyone loses.

The book breaks sharply with its methodology of poetics of inexpressible desire, which has proved useful only in the interpretation of modernist or pre-emancipatory literature and  introduces a new approach in thoughts, as this book is written, from the perspective of queer theory, which in India is developing dynamically.
