Digging back through the files I find this interesting blog post which gives an overview of late 19thC Bengali sci-fi:

Automated houses, rockets to the moon, etc.


if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

That was fascinating.  Now I have another item on my to-do list: learning Bengali.

A true alternative subculture is one that not only questions the social status quo but poses viable solutions to some of the perceived underlying problems. Difference from the norm is not the same as superiority to the mainstream unless it can be  argued that the difference is positing a better way.
