I can name quite a few; but #GopinathMohanty, whom my parents and I have translated, is just as great, and, in many senses, greater. We need to be cautious before passing carte blanche judgement against #Indianwriters. I've read &/or taught all the novelists below save Lovecraft. ImageImageImage #CSLewis and #JRRTolkien taught my father at Christ Church, Oxford. Arthur Conan Doyle and Jules Verne certainly don't bat in the same league as Chekov. And to put Jonathan Swift in here? How's that? #GopinathMohanty is in the league of #Tolstoy, #Dostoevsky, #Dickens & #Hardy.

Modiji's forefathers have not built a single monument worth showcasing to the world? Hindu temple srchitecture, with its 1000s of ancient temples & forts, is world renowned for its extraordinary beauty.

I wonder which planet this bigoted person inhabits.

And it's: no calls for. Architecture.
