English is a Window to the world today. Approximately 700 million people speak English as their Mother Tongue and in 33 Countries 300 million people use it as a second language. In 56 countries 100 million people us it as a foreign language.English played the role of the common Language between the British rulers and their Indian subjects as its being the official language of the Raj. It is still recognised as an associate official language.Indian Writing in English which started as a trickle in 1801 grew tremendously in the present century. It has produced such outstanding writers like Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, Sarojini Naidu, Jawaharlal Nehru, R.K. Narayan, Raja Rao, Mulk Raj Anand, Nirad C. Chaudhuri and a host of others. Sixty per cent of publications in India are still in English.No systematic and exhaustive Bibliography was available on Indian English. The absence of such a tool made the Study and Research in the area a time consuming and arduous task for scholars. L.S. Ramaiah has ably filled in the vacuum by his well-researched work.This volume is a professionally classified bibliography of all the writings on Indian English to date. All sources available in India have been consulted and compiled to make it as exhaustive as possible. Scholars, researchers, journalists, and lovers of Indian English will find the bibliography a worthwhile reference work.Printed Pages: 155.
