The Guide by R. K. Narayan



R. K. Narayan's journey as an Indian English novelist has been full of a certain life, a lively experience which goes on... forever. Since the very beginning of his career, readers must have understood what kind of an author he was destined to become. Narayan's novels, most of them, incline towards Indianness, Indian and India... be it the dilemma of horoscope or the impression of first love or even the desire to leave everything and surrender oneself to God. The Guide, let me tell the readers, is a novel which is complete and also raises several questions. Is life a purgatory? Is Maya real? Is the world an illusion and we have to leave it a day for some upper world?
