K, so
I was looking at my local library's catalouge and was really interested in knowing if there are any boosk regarding our culture, or by our indian authors available to read. The books must be fiction.

Umm..I know a couple of young adult ones, they're young adult fiction..i think!

there's one that's called "Koyal Dark, Mango Sweet" ,Blue Jasmine, and there was something else..I can't remember the name. LOLsorry!

the culture is definitely mentioned and a pretty important topic as well but the plot is kind of different-ish.

One of the most common Indian author's I've seen in libraries here is Jhumpa Lahiri
There's this book I read back in high school called "Raj" (I think) I don't remember who wrote it but it was a decent read.

There are quite a few Indian authors that I've heard of, though I'm not sure about their books. Arundhati Roy (I think?), Shoba Dey (De? Dey?), and R. K. Narayan. I studied Narayan's The English Teacher for Literature in 9th grade and admittedly it was a little boring...Maybe his other works are more interesting? IDK...

Hope it helped! *hugs* :D
