Muses India attempts a contrapuntal reading of Indian English Literature with what Ranjan Ghosh, taking a step further, calls the ""infusionist"" approach. Since a majority of readers are made to stay away from a branded literature or author, this book rejects any categorisation or branding of Indian English Literature such as ""postcolonial"" or ""Commonwealth."" It deals with a wide range of issues - which human beings suffer from all over the world - including those that may not have anything to do with the politicised side of ""the postcolonial"" or ""the Commonwealth.
