Nobel laureate and India-origin author VS Naipual, known for his caustic writings on the country of his parentage, has said he has written enough about India and will not be writing anything more on it.

“I don’t think so. I’ve written enough about India. I’ve written these four books and two novels about India and many essays,” Naipaul said.

“My background is Indian, and I have always been interested in my background,” Naipaul said, while talking about his decision to travel to India in 1962 to write the book that would become An Area of Darkness.

The writer broke down when a reference was made to his novel, A House for Mr Biswas, that revolves around the life of his father.
