THE enormous changes taking place across the globe in the field of science are bound to unleash new forms of violating ordinary order of life. This is perhaps already very much obvious in all walks of life, especially in the spheres of information technology and biotechnology. Author Suhas Sahasrabudhey writes that the world is divided into those who work on the machine and those who don't or between those who gain by it and those who lose everything because of it. The effects of globalisation and science, he says must be wholly resisted and fought as they violate ordinary life. The book attempts to understand the nature of violation of ordinary life by science and to seek modes of emancipation with Gandhi's help.
