@romainelaprophetesse a collection of short stories, written in what the editors call 'Indianised English'. More concretely, that means translations of the myriad languages of the Indian sub-continent into a English that has 'local flavour'. (Note: some Indians coined the term 'Indianised English'; it's not Orientalist)

'The Penguin book of modern Indian short stories'. Editors: Stephen Alter and Wimal Dissanayake.
