Find english novels by Indian authors

Indian English Literature refers to the body of works by authors in India who write in English and whose native or co-native language could be one of the numerous languages of India.
It is also associated with the works of members of the Indian diaspora. The very definition of the adjective “Indian” here is hazy. Many of these writers neither live in India, nor are Indian citizens. As a category, this production comes under the broader realm of postcolonial literature - the production from previously colonised countries such as India
Though one can trace such writers in India to a century back, Indian writing in English has come into force only in the last couple of decades or so, as far as literature goes.
