Waiting for the Mahatma by R. K. Narayan

Book Description

The first time that indolent young Sriram knows about Mahatma Ghandi's visit to Malgudi is when a collection box is waved beneath his nose by the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. The vision's name is Bharato. Capable and quick-witted, her scorn for her gauche but ardent admirer is almost equal to her devotion to the Mahatma. Yet that is how Sriram leaves Malgudi to become a passionate apostle of the Quit India campaign - only to find his convictions tested by the rigours of a prison cell.

"The Ramayana" is the greatest of Indian epics - and one of the world's supreme masterpieces of storytelling.

Malgudi Days by R. K. Narayan 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.
