We have a powerful potential in our youth,

and we must have the courage to change old

ideas and practices so that we may direct their power toward good ends.

We present to you a new breed of writers rising up in India. However, tackling everything from complex conflict in the Indian hinterlands to the last breaths of India’s dying professions, here is the list of Authors who stand out today and are leading the milestones from every brisk -
