Indian writing in English is attracting world attention. It is no more a curiosity that once tickled the British and is accepted globally as a serious business. The Indian literary scene is in the midst of a radical transformation. Foreign publishers are coming to India to set up Indian subsidies. Likewise Indian authors/publishers are exploring international rollout frameworks to establish market leadership and reputation. This has transformed not only Indian publishing, but also Indian writing as global Indians have started targeting a worldwide audience. URBAN VOICE, in this fourth episode, aims to capture this thrilling transformation by creating a platform for thinkers to capture ‘next-in-line’ trends and go beyond. This literary magazine is committed to publish thought-provoking pieces from all areas in different forms.
