Review by Sowmya Srinivasan, M.Phil. Psychology

Innocuous is the adjective that came to my mind when I first read the title of the book 

Human Intellect has no

Well readers! Empty your mind and pick up this book, for you are in for the ride of your lifetime!

Dedicated to his sons, specifically asking them to think out of the box, Letter to Future is an in-depth and unique analysis of Family, Society and Relationship. 

The author breaks mental barriers in defining and redefining words, by challenging the traditional and dictionary usage of language and by playing with vocabulary with creative and intellectual ease.

His views on family as an Intellectual property requiring registration, and marriage as akin to adoption, leaves one turning pages, inquisitive to know more. Some definitions and concepts are difficult to internalize at the first shot and sometimes appear repetitive, but reading over, one is able to gain the insight and the need for reiteration. 

Topics range from Husband/wife relations, to Sex, Love, Virginity, Incest, Yin and Yang, and Trilog (the sphere of human life), a whole universe of unexplored territory for many! It alternates between easy and familiar language and complex philosophical tone. 

The chapterization itself is different as he claims his book is a “full course meal”, and Calls them as Aperitif, Entrée and name a few. The book runs through a gamut of ideas, viewpoints, thoughts, philosophies, substantiated well in many parts with verses, quotes, links, many taken from Tamil literature, showcasing the author’s roots.

The Desserts chapter is a must read, especially for those who enjoy linguistics or enjoy understanding the origin of words in languages. 

Amazingly innovative, profound in parts, Letter to Future is a class apart!!

As the author himself says, the book has to be read slowly and maybe many times over. 

To sum it up, Unique!
