Post-Colonial literature often involves writings that deal with issues of de-colonization or the political and cultural independence of people formerly subjected to colonial rule. Indian writing in English is especially interesting for post-colonial exploration because the very language in which this literature is written was introduced to Indians through the experience of colonization. The brilliant trio Anand, Raja Rao and R.K. Narayan earned international recognition for Indian fiction in English. Apart from Rao and Narayan, Anand confined himself by and large to weaker sections of Indian society whose welfare was his main concern. The novel Coolie by Mulk Raj Anand deals with colonialism as a significant and political phenomenon.
