Waiting for the Mahatma by R.K. Narayan


Out of stock


The first that indolent young Sriram knows about Mahatma Ghandi’s visit to Malgudi is when a collection box is waved beneath his nose by the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. The vision’s name is Bharato. Capable and quick-witted, her scorn for her gauche but ardent admirer is almost equal to her devotion to the Mahatma.

Yet that is how Sriram leaves Malgudi to become a passionate apostle of the Quit India campaign – only to find his convictions tested by the rigours of a prison cell.
