A close study of the contemporary Indian fiction reveals that many writers offer fresh perspectives of the past through their distinct narratological modes. They examine the historical material with empirical and skeptical rigour, using fantasy and fiction for revisualization of facts. They treat history for studying the ontological condition of man in the context of postmodernism where every history is considered a kind of narrative, like the novel.

The present book includes comprehensive treatment of this subject as handled by eminent Indian novelists, namely Salman Rushdie, Shashi Tharoor, Khushwant Singh and Mukul Kesavan.
