City in Indian Fiction in English: An Assessment
Cities in Literature go back to the Vedic Age which was only the religious congregations by that time. In the history of ancient India the administrative capitals of the kings were evolved into small towns which the Chinese traveller Huen Tang describes in his travelogue Si-u-Ki. Cities in literature is a new branch of research for which most of the universities in India show a lot of interest to focus on the different angles of cities in the fictions. The present paper focuses how different fiction writers analyse their own cities in their fiction.
