Authors introduced their debut work, ‘Title is Untitled: First Night, No Light,’ released at the Festival of Hope in Delhi, November 22, 2014. ‘Title is Untitled’ is a unique social commentary, focused on the issue of rape and the social institutions that enable it in urban and rural India. Instead of relying solely on statistics to present their argument, Avvannavar, Srivastava and Babu Are utilize fictitious stories to serve as ‘case studies’ about how women are treated in Indian society. The book covers a myriad of interwoven topics, including education, early-arranged marriage and brothel trafficking. The authors tackle serious issues in a novel format, even throwing in a healthy dose of humor towards the end of the book.

Indian actor and director Kabir Sadanand offers advance praise for the work, “We must understand [rape victims] don’t need our sympathy, what they need is our commitment to stand by them. The initiative and courage to do the same as shown by the authors is inspirational.”

We present a unique book of facts blended with fiction to spread more awareness in our society. Facts about various problems in the present urban and rural societies of India are presented wrapped in fiction, like case studies to elaborate them. Women of our country are often victims to most issues like rape, marital rape, prostitution, child marriage, child trafficking and others. Not to ignore the men who are also victims to women framing them in false cases of impotency and domestic violence. There are eleven chapters presented in this book which deal with different such cases – both men and women – and try to create a little awareness in our educated society.

What do we intend to show through our Novel?

‘Title is Untitled’ –  The name itself says that this book is a subjective study. Readers are invited to bring their own subjectivity to the issues discussed in the novel. These issues are being interpreted in their own peculiar way, depending on the context and taboos. The interpretation of the authors can be assessed individually. The cover shows a symbolic relationship between these interpretations and the various pain points which are touched in the novel. Women have their own identity. However, Society has been constantly redefining their identity and trying to communicate in a different manner. These communications have been depicted by the alphabets which cover a women. The society is being denoted by a symbolic donkey in a human dress. The donkey is known to be a carrier. Society carries taboos and their unfulfilled desires. Society carries them all along, irrespective of the modernity hoax it wears ( dress). Everything in Indian society is grey. Nothing is black and white. This grey colour denotes the justification for their beliefs and taboos, which society gives to women and everybody around. However, we need to address positive interpretation of the authors. Back cover with flowers, and two eyes, shows that the authors are quite optimistic and are struggling to bring this issue in a positive manner. The future is here to blossom.” Cover Page Designed By: Mohit Goel, Master Of Design, Indian Institute Of Technology, New Delhi. Exchange Student KTH, Sweden.
