Product description


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
