He says that this is an age of instant coffees and readymade noodles and masalas, where people don’t have the time to bow before God, where they walk away from the helpless and needy, where they don’t have time to talk to their parents and siblings, where everything is at a fast pace and that people don’t have time for themselves.
He also spoke about people’s attachment to modern technical devices like mobile phones and laptops. He reiterated the fact that there is no lack of safety and privacy in the world. And all these things inspired the story behind Spyder.
