Laal Salaam

One has finished The Red Carpet, Lavanya Sankaran's collection of Bangalore-based short stories, and one is impressed. Her Austen-meets-Narayan whimsies have wit, have heart, and are extremely well-crafted. You can read a recent interview with the lady here. (Though one wonders why all new author profiles these days mention that Hollywood is interested in a film option. As though that's a marker of high literary achievement.)
