The Unhero: When Harappa Fell

Heroes are a dime a dozen. So are anti-heroes – what you call villians.

What about someone who’s none of these? That’s the unhero. A person who doesn’t believe in the futile sacrifice of his own happiness at the altar of duty, family, society, glory or any such construct. But also a human who doesn’t go out of his way to harm anyone; he’s not an anti-hero either.

Few generations live through the demise of a civilization, particularly one as great as that of the Indus Valley. The Unhero is about the choices ordinary people make, often without knowing why they choose as they do, in extraordinary times. Part history, part existentialism, it’s meant for those who believing in questioning the choices that others seem to thrust on them.
