Flatland: A Romance in Many Dimensions: Highly rec
By Shriram Jaju,
One of the Best Classic I have ever read. The author has done an intricate job of describing real world problems such as racial bigotry, status of woman in the society etc in a fictional yet true two dimensional world. Imagine a world without third dimension - A two dimensional world a Flatland - whose residents are geometrical figures such as triangles, squares, pentagon and so on to the circles - who are priests(the perfects). Where the status of people in society is based on the regularity of the shape and the number of sides they have - the more will be sides the higher will be the status - just like our own society, rich, poor and middle class. One day there comes a stranger from different land - the lands of third dimension - to enlighten the citizen of flatland about the world beyond Flatland, how would you react ? Highly recommended !!
