The Indian-English authors Salman Rushdie, Arundhati Roy, and Aravind Adiga contribute with their works to a representative cross section in postcolonial Anglo-Indian literature. They did not only write their stories in different decades after India?s independence, but they also come from different regional and social backgrounds, which are reflected in their novels. By analysing and comparing the novels with each other, this thesis aims at drawing representative conclusions about prevailing postcolonial themes and narrative techniques in contemporary Anglo-Indian literature. Hybridity, power in its various forms, postcolonial feminism, and globalisation are recurring and essential themes that shape these works; however, permitting the novels to preserve their individuality. Rushdie?s Midnight?s Children centres on the impact of its protagonist?s birth at the precise instant of India?s arrival at independence, which ties him closely to his nation?s faith. After the British left India, there are still conflicts and struggles for power and religiously motivated conflicts between Muslims and Hindus. These themes are presented through experimental narrative techniques such as magic realism, historiographic metafiction, the linking of personal and national history and a highly symbolic language. The God of Small Things by Roy is more concerned with power structures in Indian society, the role of women, the caste system and environmental issues by perceiving the world through children?s eyes. Adiga?s The White Tiger, however, portrays the gap between the rich and the poor in India and the contrast between rural villages and highly modernized IT cities. The novels? wealth of themes would easily permit to analyse further themes, e.g. communism and Marxism, which are strongly connected to postcolonialism in India and also play a prominent role in the novels.
