The Indian novel in English has come of age by participating in a global form and demonstrating its capacity and resilience for innovations. The post-Independence era has witnessed the emergence of a large number of great novelists like Salman Rushdie, Rohinton Mistry and Arundhati Roy.
Their novels reveal divergent trends; they deal with complex themes related to gender, caste, colour, diaspora, feminism and same-sex relationship. Novels on these diverse themes are able to represent India in a broad cultural context of human civilization, bridging the gap between life and literature.
