"This is a remarkable collection of information on Indian womens writing written originally in English. Beginning from the 19th century, it introduces 444 writers of poetry and fiction. Now, it has been a part of common critical parlance to say that the Indian English womens writing is in ascendance. One aim of this bibliography is to illustrate this phenomenon and to emphasise the variety of writing. Writers included in the bibliography come from all over India and from the Indian diaspora all over the world. Another aim of this bibliography is to make us aware of the constructed nature of writerhood. A given writers texts do not exist and circulate in a vacuum but in a context. We can see that Indian English womens writing is taking place. But, what we do not see is the critical establishment, that is, literary scholars and critics, taking much note of it."
