Three Indian Novels Shortlisted in Commonwealth Prize

This article in Hindustan Times says "Five Indians on Commonwealth Prize" short list. But when I look closer, two out of the five are not Indians: Jamil Ahmad is Pakistani and Shehan Karunatilaka is Sri Lankan. Nevertheless, here are the contenders for the prestigious Commonwealth prize:

"The Wandering Falcon" by Jamil Ahmad 
"Rebirth: A Novel" by Jahnavi Barua
"The Sly Company of People Who Care" by Rahul Bhattacharya
"The Book of Answers" by C.Y. Gopinath 
"Chinaman: The Legend of Pradeep Mathew" by Shehan Karunatilaka.

So good luck to the nominees, and may the best novel win.
