  4. Yeshwanth Kini

    RK Narayan’s simple way of writing has you completely glued. As you read the stories the scenes seem to get played before your eyes. This is one case where the books actually beat what we viewed on television. Every child and adult will love these tales, each with a difference, each with a lesson and every one told with deep passion. As kids grow up in our nuclear world sans the hours of hearing stories at grand-mother’s lap, books like these comes closest to that experience.

  5. Nagendra

    Great book to read and have in your collection. Captures your imagination and reminds you of childhood days. The language is simple and the humor is in good taste. Makes you wonder about one’s own childhood and the author’s insight of the things done during that period. Definitely a good buy.

  7. MOHAMMED ARIF S

    Reminds anyone of good old school days. Awesome book indeed. Easy language. The Innocence of Swami is something you cannot forget. The description of Malgudi is so realistic. Every story in the book is worth reading.

    do we see or enjoy our childhood any more?the answer to get for certain is no.so where its amiss,is it with us or with something else that prevent us from enjoying it?childhood is the only time where you can do all sorts of mischievous pranks and to be pardoned is for sure but what if more than half of your time is spent in tuition.no time at all for enjoyment.in such busy schedule this novel portraying the character of swami takes you completely back into your lost childhood,in its depths yo…

The fun we had, our friends, the way we made friends, the exam fear, the eagerly awaited vacations, our kind principal, our strict but loving teachers, our punishments everything…It is just a marvel how a book written so long back can still connect to present days.

  13. RITU TIWARI

    Reading Swami and Friends was a very refreshing visit to my childhood. Era might be different; perhaps that of our parents’. But certainly each one of us will be able to identify with the timeless character ‘Swami’ ; his innocence, his fears and insecurities, his friendship, his attitude towards teachers, school, studies, sports and other classmates, and of course the Monday blues. The similarities are striking.It is a reminder of how children think. Although we reminisce our childhood very…

  16. Rakesh Shetty

    I have always been R.K Narayan fan since childhood. I would love watching Malgudi days on Doordarshan. So when I saw this book instantly bought it . It is a story regarding Swami and his friends and their adventures in Narayan’s fiction town of Malgudi. Just awesome and reminded me of simpler times…

  17. Priya Vishwanath

    I strongly recommend this book to folks who love and value simple things in life 🙂 R.K. Narayan has brought forth genuineness and simplicity in characters so beautifully. Swami is an adorable kid who reminds you of your own little mishaps as a child. R.K Narayan’s keen observations marked by a pleasant use of English language makes you love this all the more! This is a book you wouldn’t want to drop down at any moment. Go read! 5 out of 5 for ‘Swami and friends’ and a thumbs up to His awes…

  34. Sumit Karmakar

    In this timeless classic R K Narayan narrated a story from a young boy’s point of view who lived in the fictional town Malgudi. The principal motif to be noted in this book is how a small boy sees each and everything happening around him, be it India’s uproarious nationalist movement of 1930’s or a childbirth taking place in his house. ‘Swami and Friends’ , Narayan’s first published novel portrays extensively a child’s world, found in any part of India through the protagonist Swaminathan an…
