Contemporary fiction in India could seldom offer us something more than entertainment because authors have been indulging in the 'fair' practice of offering the 'fair' literary output to the youths of the country and they are very well away from the real fiction which could be called literary. A guy and a girl and many guys and many girls and the game of the fiction is played like this. Meaningful and purposeful literature are seldom found happening on this playground but sometimes the authors like Anita Krishan do make it happen - serious and visionary fiction with the qualities which qualify for a competition on the global front - leaving this usual contemporary fiction very far behind.
