When names like V.S. Naipaul, Kiran Desai, Bharati Mukherjee, Rohinton Mistry, Jhumpa Lahiri or Salman Rushdie are mentioned, one immediately associates them with authors of literary value, to protruding cultural and/or postcolonial stance and to India.

However, none of these writers live in India, and some of them were not even born there.
