of such imaginative description of plots and characters is also found in
the later day works of almost all Indian languages. Though such works do
show the use of the abstract and the unreal, but juxtaposed in such a
way so as to render some kind of believability to the plot,
pseudo-realism as a concept in India had developed only recently.
is more applicable probably to the new Indian literature of the 21st
century. In many of these works we see the use of pure fantasy and
fantastic description of characters, plots and situations which do not
quite be called Magic realist
and yet they do not
present themselves as realism either.
