Indian Literature


Indian Literature, Sahitya Akademi's bimonthly journal, is India's oldest and the only journal of its kind featuring translations in English of poetry, fiction, drama and criticism from twenty-three Indian languages besides original writing in English. We strive to feature some of the best literature and writers in our journal, old as well as new. There is hardly any significant Indian author who has not been featured in the pages of this journal that has completed 58 years of service to the cause of Indian Literature.


Our journal offers a feast of literature with unique sections, such as 'Heritage' and 'Classics'. Our other special features include novel excerpts, travelogue, autobiography, book reviews, author interviews, and tributes to writers. Indian Literature is also highly valued as a source of reference in India and abroad and is an essential for libraries and for discriminating readers, researchers and students of creative and critical literature.
