Kamala Markandaya is one of the major first generation Indian women novelists writing in English. Her work span more than half a century from 1954 to 1982 and then 2008, when Bombay Tiger came out.
Some of her prominent thematic concerns are east-west encounter, confrontation between tradition and modernity and the clash of values. Within this pattern she weaves a richly variegated picture of life, arranging her ideas and philosophy with deft touches.
