One of the most popular and controversial writers of the twentieth century, Salman Rushdie is a British Indian essayist and novelist. He has authored several novels and short stories in his life, which has continued to attract the interest of both critics and public till date. His ability to combine magical realism with historical fiction is an exceptional quality which makes him a truly unique writer. Most of the works written by him feature around the Indian subcontinent and mostly contain themes like migrations to and fro the East and West and the incidences occurring in between them. Bit by the writing bug at the tender age of five, Rushdie’s foray into the world of literature was in the year 1975. Though his first book did not garner much positive response, Rushdie made a strong comeback with his second novel which not only gained him international fame and recognition but brought equivalent commercial and critical success. Since then, there has been no looking back for this excellent writer who continued to allure his readers through his numerous novels, short stories and non-fiction. It was Rushdie’s fourth novel, ‘The Satanic Verses’, which enraged the Muslim community across the globe to the extent of Ayatollah Khomeini issuing a fatwa or a death sentence against him. However, despite the same, Rushdie continued writing and released several books and novels. For his immense contribution in the field of literature, Rushdie is the proud recipient of several prestigious awards, honorary doctorates and fellowships.
