Rahul Bhattacharya's debut novel, The Sly Company of People Who Care, has won the The Hindu Literary Prize for Best Fiction 2011. The award carries a cash prize of Rs. 5 lakh and a plaque.

The book, which narrates a young Indian's Caribbean adventures in the company of a Guyanese diamond-hunter, won the award for “its consummate artistry, its refusal to exoticise India — or Guyana … and its non-judgmental attitude to the characters, reports The Hindu.

The award was presented by MP Shashi Tharoor.
