Nowadays the writings of Indian writers who are writing in English are becoming acclaim from around the world. They are the best sellers of this era. There is a lot of work being done in the local languages but those writers are experiencing lesser rise and development. Hence, it are often said that the research problem is that despite its own developed network of vernacular languages and literature, how is it that Indian writers who are writing in English are rising and growing at such a rapid pace. So a search was pursued with three questions viz. the explanations for the rise and growth of Indian English writers, from when such an increase and growth commenced and what is the impact of the rise and growth of Indian English writers on the society, language and literature of India. This research took an applied method and the specified data was collected from secondary sources. The conclusion reached on the idea of the analysis of the data was that most Indian English writers come from affluent backgrounds. Even though once they write about the middle and lower classes they portray it in a manner that someone belonging to the upper classes will do. This helps them to attach to the world. But theres lack of connect with the vast majority of the population of this country. it had been only after LPG (Liberalization-Privatization-Globalization) that the doors and windows of India were opened for the rest of the world. This was the period when actually for the first time everyone saw the event of foreign readership of the Indian English writers. This was the time of the early 1990s. This was the period when the domestic readers also started taking the Indian English writers and rediscovering many of them. And, as a results of this increased interaction between India and the rest of the world, India is relevance will increase within the global podiums.
