Rahul Bhattacharya bagged the The Hindu Literary Prize for Best Fiction 2011 for his The Sly Company of People Who Care on 30 October 2011. According to The Hindu, The Sly Company of People Who Care won the prize for its consummate artistry, its refusal to exoticise India. The award was presented by author, writer, politician and a Member of Parliament (MP) Shashi Tharoor.

A debut novel won The Hindu's Literature Prize in the Lit for Life literary festival for the second successive year. The award carries a cash prize of Rs 5 lakh.

In his book The Sly Company of People Who Care, Rahul Bhattacharya captured the heady adventures of travel, the overheated restlessness of youth, and the paradoxes of searching for life’s meaning in the escape from home. The book narrates a young Indian's Caribbean adventures in the company of a Guyanese diamond-hunter.
Rahul Bhattacharya has been working as a cricket journalist since 2000. He is currently a contributing editor with Wisden Asia Cricket and has been writing for the Wisden Almanack since 2003, when he compiled the series overview of India in England, 2002. He also writes for the Guardian.
