Raja Rao M. Eng , M. Phil, Ph. It is also associated with the works of members of the Indian diaspora, such as V. It is frequently referred to as Indo-Anglian literature.
He contrasts this with the works of earlier writers such as Narayan where the use of English is pure, but the deciphering of meaning needs cultural familiarity.
He also feels that Indianness is a theme constructed only in IWE and does not articulate itself in the vernacular literatures. He further adds "the post-colonial novel, becomes a trope for an ideal hybridity by which the West celebrates not so much Indianness, whatever that infinitely complex thing is, but its own historical quest, its reinterpretation of itself".
Some of these arguments form an integral part of what is called postcolonial theory.
The renowned writer V. Naipaul, a third generation Indian from Trinidad and Tobago and a Nobel prize laureate, is a person who belongs to the world and usually not classified under IWE. Naipaul evokes ideas of homeland, rootlessness and his own personal feelings towards India in many of his books. Jhumpa Lahiri, a Pulitzer prize winner from the U. Recent writers in India such as Arundhati Roy and David Davidar show a direction towards contextuality and rootedness in their works.
Arundhati Roy, a trained architect and the Booker prize winner for her The God of Small Things, calls herself a "home grown" writer. Her award winning book is set in the immensely physical landscape of Kerala. In both the books, geography and politics are integral to the narrative.
In his novel Lament of Mohini , Shreekumar Varma touches upon the unique matriarchal system and the sammandham system of marriage as he writes about the Namboodiris and the aristocrats of Kerala. Poetry A much over-looked category of Indian writing in English is poetry. As stated above, Rabindranath Tagore wrote in Bengali and English and was responsible for the translations of his own work into English. A generation of exiles also sprang from the Indian diaspora.
In modern times, Indian poetry in English was typified by two very different poets.
Dom Moraes, winner of the Hawthornden Prize at the age of 19 for his first book of poems A Beginningwent on to occupy a pre-eminent position among Indian poets writing in English. Nissim Ezekiel, who came from India's tiny Bene Israel Jewish community, created a voice and place for Indian poets writing in English and championed their work.
India's experimental and avant garde counterculture is symbolized in the Prakalpana Movement. During the last four decades this bilingual literary movement has included Richard Kostelanetz, John M. Vattacharja Chandan is a central figure who contrived the movement. Prakalpana fiction is a fusion of prose, poetry, play, essay, and pictures.

Greene and Narayan remained close friends till the end. Similar to the way Thomas Hardy used Wessex , Narayan created the fictitious town of Malgudi where he set his novels. Some criticise Narayan for the parochial, detached and closed world that he created in the face of the changing conditions in India at the times in which the stories are set.
Others, such as Greene, however, feel that through Malgudi they could vividly understand the Indian experience. Narayan's evocation of small town life and its experiences through the eyes of the endearing child protagonist Swaminathan in Swami and Friends is a good sample of his writing style.
Simultaneous with Narayan's pastoral idylls, a very different writer, Mulk Raj Anand — , was similarly gaining recognition for his writing set in rural India, but his stories were harsher, and engaged, sometimes brutally, with divisions of caste, class and religion. Rushdie, with his famous work Midnight's Children Booker Prize , Booker of Bookers , and Best of the Bookers , ushered in a new trend of writing.
Nayantara Sehgal was one of the first female Indian writers in English to receive wide recognition. Her fiction deals with India's elite responding to the crises engendered by political change.
He is also the author of a historical novel A Flight of Pigeons , which is based on an episode during the Indian Rebellion of Being a self-confessed fan of Jane Austen , his attention is on the story, its details and its twists and turns. Vikram Seth is notable both as an accomplished novelist and poet.
Vikram Seth is also a prolific poet. Ghosh's latest work of fiction is River of Smoke , the second volume of The Ibis trilogy. Shashi Tharoor , in his The Great Indian Novel , follows a story-telling though in a satirical mode as in the Mahabharata drawing his ideas by going back and forth in time. His work as UN official living outside India has given him a vantage point that helps construct an objective Indianness. Vikram Chandra is another author who shuffles between India and the United States and has received critical acclaim for his first novel Red Earth and Pouring Rain and collection of short stories Love and Longing in Bombay His namesake Vikram A.
Chandra is a renowned journalist and the author of The Srinagar Conspiracy Suketu Mehta is another writer currently based in the United States who authored Maximum City , an autobiographical account of his experiences in the city of Mumbai.
Recent writers in India such as Arundhati Roy and David Davidar show a direction towards contextuality and rootedness in their works. Arundhati Roy, a trained architect and the Booker prize winner for her The God of Small Things , calls herself a "home grown" writer. Her award winning book is set in the immensely physical landscape of Kerala. In both the books, geography and politics are integral to the narrative. In his novel Lament of Mohini , Shreekumar Varma touches upon the unique matriarchal system and the sammandham system of marriage as he writes about the Namboodiris and the aristocrats of Kerala.
Similarly, Arnab Jan Deka , a trained engineer and jurist, writes about both physical and ethereal existentialism on the banks of the mighty river Brahmaputra. His co-authored book of poetry with British poet-novelist Tess Joyce, appropriately titled A Stanza of Sunlight on the Banks of Brahmaputra , published from both India and Britain , evokes the spirit of flowing nature of life.
