HT's Greatest Indian Novels

Do not add books to this list.

This is a list of the greatest Indian novels ever written. It might feel incomplete (only books written in English or translations of works in Hindi and other regional languages figure here). It might seem biased (they're personal picks from the best literary minds of our time). It might even appear as though we've missed your personal favourite (lists tend to do that). But for anyone looking to jump into the rich world of Indian writing, it's a beautiful and imperative start. - See more at: http://www.hindustantimes.com/brunch/...
