Rao is beyond doubt one of the most prominent Indian novelists writing in
English. He has laid a strong foundation to Indian English Novel together
with Mulk Raj Anand and R. K. Narayan. Raja Rao, in particular, has been very
instrumental in the development of Indian English Novel. His novels are
replete with Indian sensibility characterized by his unique style and subject
matter. His first and best-known novel Kanthapura is a remarkable expression
of the Indian sensibility. The novel is Indian both in theme and treatment.
Acceptance of an Indian way of writing in English and Indianization of the
novel as a form of literature is what makes Raja Rao postcolonial in
style.1The paper attempts a postcolonial reading of Kanthapura focusing on
Raja Rao's style characterized by Indian sensibility and Indianness. Ishfaq
