Indian Literature

Indian literature refers to the literature produced on the Indian subcontinent until 1947 and in the Republic of India thereafter.

The term "Indian literature" is sometimes used more loosely to refer to literature of the Indian diaspora (people of Indian origin living outside of India). Some people also use it to refer more broadly (and incorrectly if speaking of work produced after Partition in 1947) to South Asian literature.

The Republic of India has 22 officially recognized languages. Indian literature is written in these languages as well as in the English language.
