Zero Degree speaks to us from the prisons of human conditions in varying voices. The self proclamatory statements it announces are the soundwaves of the gramophone which reads out from the dreams of these prison walls. Charu Nivedita’s characters gain friendship, peace, health and mental balance from the tragic locations of historical and spiritual constructions of war, dictatorship, corruption, horror, atrocity, ruthlessness of history, poverty, diseases, boundless miseries of women and the intriguing sexual relationships.Charu Nivedita is not afraid of castling sex with words. While he looks kicking away the conservative moral scriptures, he dares writing the documents hitherto unavailable in Malayalam.

Zero Degree is an open laboratory. In its heat and in its smog and through the magical moments, I enjoyed an adventurous journey fully as a reader and a writer.
