What remains to be seen, according to him, is how any writing considered rebellious now is perceived in the future.
"We need to see how these books are read in the 30 to 50 years," Thayil said.
At the the end of the session, Nemade had a message for the young generation to go much ahead of just rebellion in books. "A bit of revolution will clear the country forever.
So, this would be my message to the younger generation."
At the JLF 2012, Thayil was at the center of a row after he read passages from Salman Rushdie's banned book "Satanic Verses". The aftereffects were seen even this year when some groups voiced opposition to his inclusion in this year's festival and also when he bagged this year's DSC Prize for South Asian Literature.
