Abstract :

As we know that R.K. Narayan created an imaginary place Malgudi in his works. And most of the novels and stories take place in this venue. Narayan depicted the Indian society scenario through his works on the land of Malgudi. Narayan's craftsmanship lies not only in the conventional life of Malgudi but also in the leaving attention he devotes to building up a real picture of Malgudi and its inhabitants. Malgudi is his greatest Character with its Mempi Hills, tiger haunted jungles, Natraj Printing shop, Jagan's sweet emporium, Johansian Character's like Mr. Sampath and Natraj. Narayan finds plenty of comedy in the normal life of Malgudi. His attitude towards Malgudi remains lovingly sympathetic. He loves to depict the traditional life of Malgudi with all its backwardness gentle-teasing and deep understanding.
