Eminent Indians: Writings from the Raj is a representative selection of ten persons who have distinguished themselves in the various genres of literature. Though English language is foreign in its origin, a number of Indian writers writing in English have gained international recognition. Their charming and graceful diction, their innate sentiments, their minute observations of men and nature, their exquisite sense of beauty, their masterly use of metaphors, and their fascinating expressions have carved for them a permanent niche in the facade of the world literature. From Toru Dutt to Sarojini Naidu, Mulk Raj Anand to R.K. Narayan and Khushwant Singh to Salman Rushdie besides many others, this a an informative book on the trends of English writing in India. M.L. Ahuja, MA, DLL, DCS, is the author of nine books. He has contributed numerous articles to reputed journals, mostly on book publishing and the marketing of books and journals. He had an opportunity to present papers at seminars in India, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, China and Hungary. Ahuja is the recipient of the Janseva Sadhbhavna Award from the International Integration and Growth Society for his Individual Contribution to Nation's Development.
