i haven't read the works of indian writers except for - Shobha De , Chetan Bhagat and Arundhati Roy sadly, those books failed to hold my interest so i gave up after reading just one book by each author. 

of them all, Chetan Bhagat's book - 2 states was an interesting read (did not like his other books, much) 

but if you consider Asian writers then i liked ALL books by Khaled Hussaini - a thousand splendid suns being one of my favorites

I've read Shobaa De and Chetan Bhagat, might have read a few others but not that I remember among the so many books I've read.

Shobaa De is well.. urm .. something I did not like reading, over doze of unnecessary vulgarity. Apart from her book Strange Obsession the others just went way over my head (like Snapshots, Sultry Day, Sisters)

I liked Chetan Bhagat's books, a very realistic approach, 2 states didn't impress me as much as his first three books!

I have by far read only Chetan Bhagat's bestsellers. He was such a nightmare that I dint once touch any other Indian author's book. LOL Though, my Grand Dad and Dad tell me that the criteria of his writings is solely to motivate the youth and everything and if I am searching well written stuff - I have to hit the short stories of Khushwant Singh, Munshi Prem Chand etc etc. :D

One of my faves is 2 states by Chetan Bhagat - a light read, but definitely entertaining ! I also enjoyed The Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banarjee Divyakaruni (sp?), a historical/mythical book !
