Overview: Malgudi Schooldays

Malgudi Schooldays (Puffin Classics) is written by R.K Narayan. Narayan was the author of Malgudi Days, a collection of short stories, first published in the year 1943. The book features nineteen stories, based in a fictional small town called Malgudi. All the stories in the book were developed around the simple life of the dwellers. The verdant fields of the small South Indian town, its grimy streets, the innocent schoolchildren and the bucolic way of living of the people come alive through the stories. A television series based on 'Malgudi Days' aired on Indian television in the year 1986. The author received various awards and accolades. He was honoured with the AC Benson Medal by the Royal Society of Literature and also received the Padma Vibhushan from the Government of India.

Malgudi Schooldays is centred around the lives of Swaminathan and his friends Rajam and Mani?three children who live in Malgudi. Three of the children study in the same school and in the same class. The main attraction of the story lies in the simple storytelling style of the author and his lively depiction of characters and events, the scenic beauty of the town and the various facets of small-town life. Swaminathan is a mischievous kid who plays pranks on his grandmother. He imagines himself running down the streets of the town with the hoop used by coachmen in his hand. The thought fills his mind with delight and pleasure. The story is based in the time when the country was going through a tumultuous phase of history. This is reflected in Swami's actions, when he draws inspiration from a swadeshi demonstration and hurls stones at the windows of his school.

Malgudi Schooldays is a good read for readers of all ages. The book epitomises simple yet enchanting literature. Published by Penguin India, the 264-page paperback book has the ISBN 10 number of 0143330985 and ISBN 13 number of 9780143330981.
