    We have a competition running at the moment to win a trip to India. It's one of our best ever. We thought it would be nice to highlight some Indian literature to compliment the competition but it's actually quite difficult to find contemporary Indian writers, in print, in translation and available. But we have put together a nice little list of classical Sanskrit epics alongside more recent Poetry and fiction.

    Of course, it would be remiss of us not to mention the great Indian writing in English that include such well known names as Vikram Seth, Salman Rushdie, Arundhati Roy, Amitav Ghosh, Rohinton Mistry, Vikram Chandra, Vikas Swarup, Anita Desai, Kiran Desai, Jhumpa Lahiri, Aravind Adiga and Gita Mehta.

    Also, we mustn't forget a wealth of great travel writing and history.
