Summary
Introducing this collection of stories, R.K. Narayan describes how in India "the writer has only to look out of the window to pick up a character and thereby a story." Malgudi days, featuring short fiction written over almost forty years, is the marvelous result. Here Narayan portrays an astrologer, a snake charmer, a postman, a vendor of pies and chappartis -- all kinds of people, drawn in full colour and endearing domestic detail. and under his magician's touch the whole imaginary city of Malgudi springs to life, revealing the essence of India and of human experience
Summary
Stories depict the lives of beggars, holy men, students, and the other inhabitants of an imaginary Indian city
