did you know that the fictitious name Malgudi was something he pulled out of the names of two places in Bangalore.

Today morning only the BBC newssite spoke about it.
All our so called national news sites are just harping about election in TN and WB, and all other daily miscellany.
R.K Narayan was the greatest 'Storyteller' of our times - may his soul rest in peace.

I believe that Malgudi as in R.K. Narayan's 'Malgudi Days' is a real place, not a fictional one as mentioned a couple of posts back.
I was reading the year-end edition of Outlook a couple of weeks ago, and they had this great series on mythical places in India which actually exist in real life... eg., Rampur, Jhumri Talaiya, and of course, Malgudi. Please read this excellent issue and know about all these culturally significant towns.

Check out http://www.outlookindia.com , and go to the back issues section, and the earliest January section, they have the feature I was talking earlier about, in an online version. One of the best articles I have seen in an Indian magazine,in fact any magazine, and a 10/10.
READ IT !!

I really like some of our jewels like Acahrya Atre, P.L. Deshpande, R.K. Narayan and many others.
Well, thei work will always live on and continue to enthrall generations to come... i.e if people still prefer to read! whether on the internet or plain old paper books!
