Summary Of The Book
DAM 999: A Novel is a story that is based on the lives of nine characters. These characters are based on the nine emotions that humans feel which are known as the Navarasa. The story begins with the introduction of two characters that are mariners and have just made their way back home. These mariners are oblivious of the severe political tension that surrounds the presence of an ancient dam. This dam happens to be just behind the home of the mariners.
As the story advances, readers are introduced to another character that goes on to build a new dam in the area. This character is symbolic of greed in human nature. The new dam has been made without keeping in mind any of the necessary safety norms. As a result of this, the lives of millions of people are under threat.
The novelist does an excellent job in portraying the problems faced by the people as a result of the new dam being built and also focusses on their struggle for survival.
DAM 999: A Novel has been adapted into a movie, entitled DAM 999 as well. The movie has been directed by the author himself, and has been produced by BizTV Network.
