Overview: Malgudi Days

The book 'Malgudi Days', is a collection of short stories written by the famous author R.K.Narayan. This book received a huge response from readers around the world. The short stories are based in the fictional town of Malgudi, and the characters are common people with extra-ordinary human qualities. The light narrative and powerful description makes this book special in its own kind. A television series named 'Malgudi Days' featured all these short stories and was telecasted on 'Doordarshan' channel. The television series was also as famous as the book.

The fictional town of Malgudi is home to some amazing human beings who are full of life and happiness. There is an astrologer who meets his competitor, a Tamil Brahmin who is accused of eating fish, then a man who carved a perfect image of god, a boy who failed his examinations, a doctor who has to tell a lie, a blind beggar who catches a dog and a boy called Swami who hates going to school. All these characters face some challenge in their lives, and the book tells an amazing story of their wit, wisdom and sometimes foolishness, as well. The refreshing narrative backed with humor and great sense of human behavior makes this book one of the best collection of short stories.

R.K.Narayan is one of the most famous story tellers from India. He completed his education from the Maharaja's College, Mysore. Throughout his career as a writer, he composed nemours novels in the fictional town of Malgudi. Swami and his Friends, The bachelors of Arts, and Mr. Sampath are some of his famous works.

  1.  Not a "Yet another Indian Saga" 5 February, 2012 On
    There are arguments on the exact location of Malgudi. In my opinion, Malgudi is a synonym for any Indian village.

    There is the local tea shop, the banyan tree, the temple, the snake charmer, the farmers, the poor, the rich, the bangalows, their gardens, the gardeners,the local school, kids, elders, families, their pets, the job-seekers, the tricksters, the dead and the living.

    And...all of them have a role to play, a story to say.

    A great narrative. R.K.Narayan wrote it well before writers and movie makers started selling "Indyeah" and its stories.

    A book to be read, a village to be visited.

  2.  I wish I could visit this village 29 March, 2013 On
    Opposed to my feeling about short stories from my school days English course books, I started loving short stories after reading this book.

    Each story, each character, each landscape that R.K. Narayan creates comes to life in just the first line where he introduces it.
    The best thing about these short stories is that you will be able to relate each character to a person that you have met in real life. So, reading this book feels like reading about your teacher, your neighbor, your sister your friend, your nearby river side, marketplace or your house.
