The Silicon Mind : A racy sci-fi thriller by Dr Manikarnika Lagu

The Silicon Mind, authored by Dr Manikarnika Lagu, is a racy sci-fi thriller involving a very sophisticated neural chip implant by a robot on a human brain. It revolves around the interwined lives of Ray, a leading neurosurgeon, sharp and flamboyant proprietor and driving force of Chetna, India's foremost coma clinic and Dr Aman Kapoor, a reputed physician and accident victim who falls into a coma.

Aman becomes Ray's unsuspecting guinea pig. Ray and his American collaborators successfully implant a silicon chip inside Aman's brain, true to the book's sci-fi genre, a robot does the operation. Aman wakes up, rejuvenated and changed forever. As Ray and his team expected, his brain has been enhanced to superlative degrees but his body suffers strange illnesses, a result of the conflict between the material chip and the corporeal brain.

The story is about how Aman manages to trace his bizarre bodily symptoms and sudden miraculous healing powers to his brain operation at Chetna with the help from Manasi, his psychiatrist, and her journalist friend, Ishan. Ray finally buckles to emotional pressure from Manasi and his own daughter, the irrepressible Sakshi and has to undo the wrong he had done by trying to play God.

The machinations that happen within the medical profession at various levels, the business of scientific research and discovery, Aman's highly individualilstic personality, his queer experience with patients after the implant, the growing relationship between him and Manasi - all make interesting reading.

After remaining an academic for two decades she took voluntary retirement to pursue her passion for writing. She loves to live in new places all the time as it invigorates her and boosts her creative urge.
