The bestselling business books of all time
This has been a good year for Indian writing in English, with excellent books appearing in a range of categories. One of those preoccupations, our affection for linguistic code-mixing, has led to the growth of a whole body of writing in English on Hindi cinema. Perhaps this was the year Indian English publishing properly jettisoned that still-lingering colonial hangup about popular Hindi cinema being unworthy of study. Serious writing on the Hindi film industry including book length interviews Nasreen Muni Kabeer's Conversations with Waheeda Rehman and examinations of a film star's place in cinematic history and through him of a whole era - Gautam Chintamani's Dark Star; The Loneliness of Being Rajesh Khanna comes to mind - especially, seems to have come of age. The publication of Kamala Das' Selected Poems and Arvind Krishna Mehrotra's Collected Poems has underlined why we continue to turn to these poets: in times of confusion and uncertainty, truth shines in poetry.

A mixed bag of the some of this year's best fiction and non-fiction titles by Indian authors. Other complaints aside, this year did bring us some good books to curl up with. From fact to fiction, long reads to short stories, and graphic novels to poetry, here's what we loved in Mahajan's second book is a story of small bombs and big tragedies that, somehow, also manages to retain a rippling, pulsating sense of humour. Adiga uses the trope of India's obsession with cricket to tell a coming-of-age story of a young boy in a slum.
