Author Aurijit Ganguli brings quality of fiction and entertainment together...

Coming from a literary background and having an education predominantly in the literary domain always vexed me... about the present state of Indian literature irrespective of language. I often question the authors who are writing these days. Be it Chetan Bhagat or Amish Tripathi or even Amitav Ghosh, where are the values we look for? Where are the qualities in your literature that can guide the readers towards deciding what is right and wrong? I am not even naming those who are only busy with their sensual, sizzling and abject leisure literature. However, the ones who are famous, 'powerful' and celebrities, what are they doing? Amidst such crisis, there are also the ones who are not established and just emerging but they are offering more value and qualities in their produced works. One such novelist is Aurijit Ganguli and today I am writing about him. He has published his debut work The Shambala Sutras recently.

Best book to study literary theory and criticism – yes, the Peter Barry book!

Are you a student of English literature? If your answer is yes, you are probably looking for some overwhelming book that might open a Pandora's box of simple and comprehensive ideas and make you understand literary theory and literary criticism... and that is why you are here because you want to know if such a book exists. Yes, the answer is yes and there is a book which has been recommended time and again by many literary scholars, experts and modern-day literary influencers who think that Peter Barry's book, Beginning Theory, does not only solve the basics like what is literary theory but also offers a comprehensive insight into things which are complicated in nature and take a full week of regular lectures by experts to be clarified.

Contemporary Indian Authors I recommend reading – my list

I don't generally recommend authors on this blog. I have been doing a lot of book reviews whenever I find time. I have been recommending books to my lovely readers who are also readers in general. However, this is, perhaps the first time that I am recommending a list of authors, Indian authors, I recommend you should read because they are not only different in what they offer to you as a reader but also genuine, originally creative and almost peculiar in their content. Are you ready to know about the Indian authors I have to write about today? Read the article.
