This book by R.K. Narayan is just wonderful. It reminds us of our school days. 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. It is just a wonderful book that will make you get serious, tickle you and make you laugh at the same time. Just get hold of this book and relive your childhood once again. --D Vinay on Feb 24, 2013
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. --Nagendra on Jun 17, 2012

This is the dialogue still etched to my memory ,having read the book in my pre-teen years in Hindi.Ironically,my mother too enjoys Swami's plight in the dialogue equally.
To let know the readers,this dialogue Swami weeps out when his dad decides to make him study on a holiday on his mother's egging.
And Swami, with his endless antics, never fail to amuse you. His loyal companions, his brute of a principal, and his ever-loving grandmother. This book, I could pick up and read anytime and not get bored. Just my 2 paise.
