Swami and Friends by R. K. Narayan
Book DescriptionTen-year-old Swaminathan is living in exciting times. The sleeping giant of India is beginning to stir to the dwelling reverberations which herald the great struggle for independence. But it's all rather confusing for the boy. For like his family and friends, Swami has been immutably moulded by his British rulers - and though he might happily demonstrate against them, he wouldn't dream of missing cricket practice.

Books By Author R. K. Narayan
Painter of Signs, Paperback (November 2006)
Presents a story in which love gets in the way of progress when Raman, a sign painter, meets the thrillingly independent Daisy, who wishes to bring birth control to the city of Malgudi.
Ramayana, Paperback (November 2006)
"The Ramayana" is the greatest of Indian epics - and one of the world's supreme masterpieces of storytelling. Telling the story, this work suggests that it can be enjoyed for its psychological insight, its spiritual depth and its wisdom - or as a tale of abduction, battle and courtship played out in a universe with heroes, deities and demons.
Malgudi Days, Paperback (November 2006)
Introducing a collection of stories, this work portrays an astrologer, a snake-charmer, a postman, a vendor of pies and chappatis - all kinds of people, drawn in full colour and domestic detail. It sheds light on the city of Malgudi, revealing the essence of India and of human experience.

Raju's first stop after his release from prison is the barber's shop. Then he decides to take refuge in an abandoned temple. Raju used to be India's most corrupt tourist guide, but now a peasant mistakes him for a holy man. Gradually he begins to play the part. He succeeds so well that God himself intervenes to put Raju's new holiness to the test.
