Yes, seen this. Amish Tripathi probably have overtaken Chetan Bhagat with his 'Shiva-trilogy' in popularity. The new virus of 'Book-bucket Challenge' in facebook, had more Amish Tripathi books in the Top 10 lists. I have thus far resisted the recommendations from the 'well-read' with 10 books under their belt telling me what I miss by not reading 'Shiva trilogy' and '5 mistakes'.

On a serious note, I do not see any one from India getting this in the near future. It's my personal opinion that most of the Indian-English writing is shallow and superficial and the regional language writing ( Bengali, Malayalam, Tamil for example where the literary scene is more vibrant) lack from quality translation to English.
U.R. Ananthamurthy came to mind a couple of months ago as a possibility but unfortunately that cannot occur now. Nevertheless it would be great to see a Jnanpith Award recipient get the Nobel someday.
