Indian Chick Lit in English: Adopted or Adapted
This paper will look at the short history of the genre as it began in the West and trace how the term ?Chick Lit? was ironically adopted in its present context. Further it will examine the genre as it was imported outside its Anglo-American environment, particularly to India. The influence of the two master plots on Indian Chick Lit and its transformation in the globalized Indian milieu or the Indian-isation of Chick Lit will be explored, while highlighting its divergences and overlaps. An assessment of the genre as a Western literary construct modified and embraced by new age Indian writers will also be made.
