Indian Eyes

Our listing of sub-continentnal ops

The United States was certainly not the only country to have a pulp fiction explosion. In the forties, the libraries of the Indian province of Tamil were exploding with thuppariyum kathaiga (detective stories) which were eagerly read by thousands of readers. Their adventures were serialized in such popular magazines as Anar Da Vikatan and Kalkandu, and developed huge followings.
