  • Analysis Of Swami And Friends

    bordering/limiting place such as Malgudi, rise above the (related to a large area) framework and become novels of greater importance and wider vision. That is why, on the face of it, Narayan appears to be a (related to a large area) book writer whose plots have a (based on a made-up idea) place, namely a small township of Malgudi in South India. Just as Tough and strong 's novels are called Wessex novels, in the same way Narayan 's novels are called Malgudi novels. In this way Narayan 's Malgudi has the analogical relationship with Tough and strong 's Wessex. As Prof. K. R. Sinivasa Iyengar statements, "Malagudi is Narayan 's Casterbridge". Educated people have made useless attempts and wild guesses in identifying this small town of Malgudi. Prof. Iyengar himself thinks that it could be the Malgudi on the bank of the river Kaveri near Yadavagin in Mysore. Some others tried to identify Malgudi with Coimbatore which shares many common features such as a river on one side, forests and hills on the other, a mission school and a college, extension to the city-based limits, mills, etc. But all these guesses remain only imaginary and Narayan 's Malgudi seems to be a product of his own mind, a world of his imagination. He has not drawn any map of this place as William Faulkner did, nor had he a clear-cut map in his mind as Tough and strong had of his Wessex, though others have done the work for Narayan as, for instance, M. K. Naik has added (to the end) a map of Malgudi in his book…
