The author argues about the relevance given to the English literature by the Indian writers. The literary events give more relevance to the authors who write in English. In a country like India, the language writers like R.K Narayan or Raj Rao are given less prominence. The author believes that English literature works are more in the country as it has more readers than other language literatures. The author himself chose to write in English as it is the language that he can express well. The author belongs to a middle class family whose native language is Kannada.
However, the native language is not used by the author in his literature works are the readers are more for the English writing even though their personal and emotional lives are different. In the view point of the author, the English literature is very much the part of the Indian literature as any other language literatures. The respect has to be given to each literature, irrespective of their language as each has its own value, identify and history.
