Not Naipaul's Point of View

"Basically, the great thing is that you can't say there's a school of Indian writing. Because of the width of references that we can select ... that's what makes Indian literature as rich as the literature of Europe....When I'm writing in English, I'm referring not only ... to other Indian writers in English, but also to people like Shakespeare and Jane Austen and George Eliot, and I expect a certain catching of reference from those writers."

- Vikram Seth
