Swami and Friends by RK Narayan - review
S wami is used to a simple life, and just when he had it under control, new things start to happen for him. He has to prepare for exams, cope with his new baby brother, and his new high school certainly hasn't gotten of to a very good start. Life starts to get very overwhelming, and Swami might just have to run away. This is one Indian novel, that isn't just about snake charmers and tigers, and is one of the world's best English novels by an Indian author. Swami and Friends is the second book in the Malgudi Schooldays series.

Just looking at the cover art and reading the title transported me back to my childhood days. But when it comes to books I read all genres without bias most of the time. The story follows the adventures and misadventures of a ten-year old boy Swami and some of his friends, in and out of the school. Just like almost all the kids, Swami loves to play all day, even in scorching heat and hates to go to school. Swami has some friends from his school.
