No Indian Writer in this year's Booker Shortlist

I had never thought that this would happen. But it has. There is no Indian writer in the shortlist this year. Was there an Indian in the long list? Not sure. As a matter of fact there is no South Asian writer shortlisted this year. Ah well, maybe we will be back with a bang next year.
