Indian Literature


Indian Literature, Sahitya Akademi's bimonthly journal, is India's oldest journal featuring translations in English of poetry, fiction, drama and criticism from twenty-three Indian languages besides original writing in English. We strive to feature the best of Indian literature and Indian 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 65-year-old journal.


Our journal offers a feast of literature with short stories, poetry, book reviews, plays, travelogue, essays, author interviews, tributes to writers and excerpts from novels and autobiographical work. Indian Literature is also a highly valued source of reference for literature in India and is essential for libraries and for discriminating readers, researchers and students of literature.

English translations must be accompanied by a letter from the original author granting permission to publish the translations in Indian Literature.
