As sub-humans they were little better than slaves. #Quote by Kiran Nagarkar

#10. They dressed for dinner and followed the strict discipline of upper class English families. The next morning they took me with them for the county fox hunt. Since I could not ride, I asked to be excused. But I did get to see the ritual of dress, the hierarchy observed among hunting types, the blowing of horns, the handling of beagles, a poor fox being run to death and having its tail (brush) cut off. Having achieved their object, glasses of sherry were passed round like prasad after a religious service. #Quote by Khushwant Singh
Indian Fiction quotes by Udai Yadla

Maybe it's a habit. He probably raises his eyebrows hourly. #Quote by Anjali Kirpalani

Indian Fiction quotes by Rachel Caine
#43. Um… Eve…can I ask…?"
"About what?" Eve was still frowning at the pasta like she suspected it to do something clever, like try to escape the pot.
"You and Michael."
"Oh." A surge of pink to Eve's cheeks. Between that and the fact that she was wearing colors outside of the Goth red and black rainbow, she looked young and very cute. "Well. I don't know if it's – God, he's just so–"
"Hot?" Claire asked.
"Hot," Eve admitted. "Nuclear hot. Surface of the sun hot. And–"
She stopped, the flush in her cheeks getting darker.
Claire picked up a wooden spoon and poked the pasta, which was beginning to loosen up. "And?"
"And I was planning on putting the moves on him before all this happened. That's why I had on the garters and stuff. Planning ahead."
"Oh, wow."
"Yeah, embarrassing. Did he peek?"
"When you were changing?" Claire asked. "I don't think so. But I think he wanted to."
"That's okay then." Eve blinked down at the pasta, which had formed a thick white foam on top. "Is it supposed to be doing that?"
Claire hadn't ever seen it happen at her parents' house. But then again, they hadn't made spaghetti much. "I don't know."
"Oh, crap!" The white foam kept growing, like in one of those cheesy science fiction movies. The foam that ate the Glass House…it mushroomed up over the top of the pot and down over the sides, and both girls yelped as it hit the burners and began to sizzle and pop. Claire grabbed the pot and mov #Quote by Rachel Caine
Indian Fiction quotes by James Carlos Blake
#44. Just imagine coming from people of two different races that had not a blamed thing in common except a love of blood in every which way.

Indian Fiction quotes by Don Webb
#46. John had written that normal fantasy ("normal" in the T.S. Kuhn sense) was written for the moderately educated class from suffering ennui. It was for folks stuck doing dull, repetitive work, growing old while not getting laid half often or variously enough, watching other, less deserving people (the privileged and the crooks) scoop up your share of fun. So then the fantasy generates the exciting world where you're given a heroic purpose and an opportunity to use those very powers you have suspected that you had but never have been able to locate and use, except in destructive ways when shit-faced. #Quote by Don Webb
Indian Fiction quotes by Daniel Pike
#47. Brea watched the other Jaren, the Jaren she wasn't sure she wanted to know, slip through the cracks of his face. He was like the changelings in that Dream Box game he was so invested in, Bladescape. Her own interested mask, the one she was supposed to wear, must have slanted a bit around the eyes because then the other Jaren, her Jaren, was back. She watched his dimples puddle in the black of his beard as his mind fumbled for something to say. And this impromptu self-modification, here at the monitoring station at the job where she'd made such a fool of herself, was the closest thing to love that Brea Morgen had ever known. #Quote by Daniel Pike
Indian Fiction quotes by Stephen King
#48. if you continue to write fiction, every character you create is partly you. #Quote by Stephen King
Indian Fiction quotes by Susan Choi

Indian Fiction quotes by Alan Lightman
#50. Two men who had never seen each other before and would not likely see each other again. But their sincerity and sweetness, their sharing an instant in a fleeting life. It was almost as if a secret had passed between them. Was this some kind of love? I wanted to follow them, to touch them, to tell them of my happiness. I wanted to whisper to them: 'This is it. This is it'. #Quote by Alan Lightman
Indian Fiction quotes by A.R. Rahman
#51. I want young Indian composers to be able to do more than just film music. I want to give them the skills that will enable them to create their own palette of sounds instead of having to write formulaic music. It doesn't matter if they become sound engineers, producers, composers or performers - I want them to be as imaginative as they like. #Quote by A.R. Rahman
Indian Fiction quotes by Richard Castle
#52. I'm trying to figure the rules. This isn't yin and yang, it's more like yin and yank. The past few days I've been going, OK, she doesn't mix the ... romance so well with the single-mindedness of the police work. So it gets me wondering, Is the solution for me to give up our working relationship? Stop my magazine research so we can-?"
Nikki grabbed him into a deep kiss. Then she pulled away and said, "Will you shut up? #Quote by Richard Castle
Indian Fiction quotes by Nick Hornby

Indian Fiction quotes by Ray Bradbury

Indian Fiction quotes by Harry Turtledove
#58. I first tried a novel when I was 14. First finished one when I was 16. First started working on stuff that had a chance of being salable in my early 20s, then didn't write much fiction at all because I was in grad school. #Quote by Harry Turtledove
Indian Fiction quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#59. The first English settlements in North America were established in the early seventeenth century by joint-stock companies such as the London Company, the Plymouth Company, the Dorchester Company and the Massachusetts Company. The Indian subcontinent too was conquered not by the British state, but by the mercenary army of the British East India Company. This company outperformed even the VOC. From its headquarters in Leadenhall Street, London, it ruled a mighty Indian empire for about a century, maintaining a huge military force of up to 350,000 soldiers, considerably outnumbering the armed forces of the British monarchy. Only in 1858 did the British crown nationalise India along with the company's private army. Napoleon made fun of the British, calling them a nation of shopkeepers. Yet these shopkeepers defeated Napoleon himself, and their empire was the largest the world has ever seen. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Indian Fiction quotes by Danko Antolovic
#60. The enlightened rational man is not unlike the title character in Mozart's opera "Don Giovanni": a likeable rake, intelligent and enterprising, free to do as he pleases, outmaneuvering his honorable, tradition-bound adversaries at every step. One cannot begrudge him his liberty and pursuit of happiness, but looming large above him is his fatal flaw: his mind's maturity does not match his freedom. His pursuits are frivolous, tawdry and destructive. And this, we maintain, is the historical moment of our techno-scientific world: like some allegorical alien race in a science fiction story, we have placed broad freedoms and enormous power in the hands of a flawed creature: ourselves. Empirical reason has brought us here, and by its light we will have to find a way forward. #Quote by Danko Antolovic
Indian Fiction quotes by Mike MacLeod
#61. A favorite pastime of soldiers on long mounted patrols was testing each other with impossible hypotheticals. They were an endearing yet vulgar form of moral drama, but only because the alternative was to contemplate being blown up by an illiterate goat herder's morning project. "What would you rather do, have sex with your sister or shoot your mother?" "Would you rather pick up a baby with a pitchfork, or throw a paraplegic in a fire?" In one form or another, these young men were weighing the relative value of human life in real terms, perhaps as a surrogate for murkier thoughts that might otherwise be in the forefront, such as, "Why am I risking my life in this wasteland?" or "Whose life is worth more, that of my best friend in the gun turret or of some Iraqi kid I've never met?" It passed the time. #Quote by Mike MacLeod
Indian Fiction quotes by Sara Sheridan
#62. Writers of novels live in a strange world where what's made up is as important as what's real. #Quote by Sara Sheridan
Indian Fiction quotes by Kanza Javed
#63. One realizes the immortality of true love only after the lover dies #Quote by Kanza Javed
Indian Fiction quotes by Paul Elie
#64. In American fiction, belief is like that. Belief as upbringing, belief as social fact, belief as a species of American weirdness: our literary fiction has all of these things. All that is missing is the believer. #Quote by Paul Elie
Indian Fiction quotes by Simon Jenkins
#65. I can think of very few science books I've read that I've called useful. What they've been is wonderful. They've actually made me feel that the world around me is a much fuller, much more wonderful, much more awesome place than I ever realized it was. That has been, for me, the wonder of science. That's why science fiction retains its compelling fascination for people. That's why the move of science fiction into biology is so intriguing. I think that science has got a wonderful story to tell. #Quote by Simon Jenkins
Indian Fiction quotes by Gita Mehta
#66. The extraordinary thing about inventing a persona is that one is loathe to give it up, especially if the fiction sits comfortably. #Quote by Gita Mehta
Indian Fiction quotes by Kim Cormack
#67. In the woods lay a bleeding angel in all her glory. Her arms posed gracefully above her head and her hair soaked in the mud, the blood and feces in which she lay. Dying, fading into the other realm, her form christened by the rain as though the trees had begun to weep upon her in sadness for the brutality she had endured. (The Children of Ankh series) #Quote by Kim Cormack

Indian Fiction quotes by K.V. Wilson
#77. If ye have a choice one way or another, don't risk it. Prepare yerself an' then come back, stronger 'n ever. Never pick a fight when angry; do it when ye've got a clear head an' a reason to risk yer life and others. Only stand up 'n fight when absolutely necessary, when it means saving a life rather than endangering more. #Quote by K.V. Wilson
