    for me Rohinton Mistry is the best. if there is any other who has captured a particular fabric of our culture & explored it, it would be Mistry.
    yep. Anees Salim is good. maybe a malayalee writer writing so urban so good is definitely a kick.

    Ministry of utmost happiness

    Arundati Roy’s attempt at fiction, after a gap of almost 20 years was looked upon with great expectations, but book despite being more rooted and ambitious is a tad underwhelming. The novel starts off pretty well, the author chooses quite bravely to craft her story around a transgender. These portions, which are further elevated by the mouth-wateringly authentic description of Old Delhi, prove to the most memorable one in the whole book. The tempo snags, when the drama moves to
    Kashmir and plays out in the manner of a love triangle. Unlike God of Small Things, the main characters in these portions are underwritten except for General Amrik Singh and fail to connect with you emotionally. There are anecdotes about Kashmir that are extremely affecting, but after a point, author seems to be only interested at making political statements , rather than telling a coherent story. Even with all its flaws it is a decent option for those who love read books centred on India, but do lower your expectations
