"English in India: A Journey of Language, Literature, and Identity"

English in India has a rich history intertwined with the country's colonial past and post-independence evolution. Initially introduced by the British East India Company in the 17th century, English gained prominence as a language of administration, education, and commerce. Over time, it became a tool for social mobility and cultural exchange. The introduction of Indian English literature marked a significant milestone, with writers like Rabindranath Tagore, R.K. Narayan, and Mulk Raj Anand shaping the narrative of post-colonial identity and socio-political issues. Their works reflected the unique blend of Indian ethos with Western literary traditions, contributing to the global recognition of Indian literature. Today, Indian English continues to evolve, reflecting the diverse linguistic and cultural landscape of the nation, while Indian writers continue to make significant contributions to world literature, bridging cultures and perspectives.
