MALGUDI DAYS ? SHORT STORIES (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.123

Malgudi Days is a captivating novel comprising three interesting stories based on the life in the small South Indian town of Malgudi, located on the banks of the river Sarayu.

Summary Of The Book

Malgudi Days is a novel that revolves around the happenings in a small fictional village named Malgudi, which is located on the banks of the river Sarayu in South India. This book is a collection of 32 short stories that are highly amusing. The remarkable feature of the stories present in this book is that they are all centered around the lives of mere commoners as they go about their daily routine. The stories present in this book mostly revolve around the relationships among family members as well as the social taboos in the mid-nineties.

Through the course of this book, readers are introduced to a ten-year-old lad named Swaminathan, and his two closest friends, Mani and Rajam, whose fun-filled exploits provide a great deal of entertainment to the readers. In another story in this book, Chandran, whose apprehensions about life and issues related to love provide for an interesting read. One of the stories in this book entitled The English Teacher, revolves around incidents in the life of Jagan, and his son Mali. Along with providing the readers with an interesting story, the author also highlights the problem of the generation gap between parents and children.

While some of the stories may keep the readers in splits of laughter, certain stories may actually cause the reader to cry, as they establish a connection between themselves and the reader. The stories present in Malgudi Days are highly thought-provoking, and make for a good read for individuals of all age groups. Malgudi Days was published for the first time in the year 1943 by Indian Thought Publications. Put together with a great deal of humor and grace, this classic piece of literature by R. K. Narayan is widely appreciated by its readers to this day. This novel, Malgudi Days, was also adapted into a television series that was aired in the year 1986, by Shankar Nag.

Malgudi Days, a great work from the author!!!

First of all, i wanna thank flipkart for their rapid service in getting me this book for which I'm grateful to them.

I completed reading this book which comprise mainly of short stories and found its worth beyond the price. The author deals with the day-to-day life of changing human nature, innocence and experiences gained, about the sensitive human qualities that one possess, and also the feeling of humiliation that one faces.The author tries to convey the readers about the hard realities of life.

It will be really impossible for me to describe the quality reading of this book in just few words, but I can assure you that though Malgudi is a fictional town of the author, you will find yourself lost in its world while going through it! :)

I have recently bought this book from flipcart.com

RK Narayanan if one of the best authors I have know. But I have never read a book written by him, although I have seen malgudi days in doordarshan when I was very small I don't remember any episodes in it. The writer has the ability to take you into the streets of malgudi with his writing. Very well written and fun to read. I will recommend this book to every one. Thanks to flipkart for selling such good books.

Iconic Work Of R.K Narayan

The efforts in the field of Indian English Literature by R.K. Narayan are always extolled by the humanity. Before reading Malgudi Days, I was well perceptive about its acclaimed conspicuousness and influential narrations. I remember, well, in no particular order, many people around me use to talk about the same book,including my mother. So, this book was always in my psyche that one day I'll surely encounter with. I was glad when I started leafing it. Malgudi days is all about assortment of short stories of different types. You will find every story unique and entertaining. There were in to... ()

I remember, well, in no particular order, many people around me use to talk about the same book,including my mother. So, this book was always in my psyche that one day I'll surely encounter with. I was glad when I started leafing it. Malgudi days is all about assortment of short stories of different types. You will find every story unique and entertaining. There were in total 32 short stories. "The Axe", "The Missing Mail" and "Ishwaran" were the three stories I loved the most.

In crux, Malgudi days (246 Pages) is the most iconic work by R.K. Narayan. Some stories will give you a glimpse of post India Independence. I recommend it and rate it 4/5

great book

Sir R.K.Narayan stories are always great to read. During my childhood I read one of the short stories of his and then I became a fan of his stories which always had some moral in the story. Unlike normal stories I could imagine the character easily as they are related to Indian culture.
Malgudi days is such book which has a great collection of stories and morals.
Every school student must read this and learn ethics from the stories.
Anyone can write stories but only few can bring them to reality and such author is Sir R.K.Narayan. So I recommend this book guys.

Must read, this Malgudi !

I was searching through websites for the list of 10 books every Indian must have read. And one books which featured on every list was certainly Malgudi Days. And one couldn't argue with the compilers, as this is definitely a classic. The book is a collection of short stories each detailing various events happening in and around Malgudi. The stories have been divided into three sections. I found the first and second sections deeply inserted within wits, yet throwing light upon various humane subjects. One would thoroughly enjoy the progress of each story. R K Narayan has wielded his pen so w... ()

One would thoroughly enjoy the progress of each story. R K Narayan has wielded his pen so well, that it became really hard to believe that Malgudi was just a fiction. Words tend short to describe the magical beauty surrounding the literature. I will recommend it to everyone. A must read !

Excellent work

This is my first time reading one of R.K. Narayan's compiled works though I have read some of his stories when I was in school...... R.K.N. has a very good command of the English language & this combined with a 20 th century Indian backdrop has created a treasure trove of memorable stories...... (View complete review)
