Swami and Friends
The Ohio State University. It takes place in British-colonial India in the year Swami talks about how different all of his friends are from one another and how their differences actually make their friendships stronger. Soon, however, a new boy arrives, named Rajam who Swami and Mani absolutely hate. After a lot of convincing, the other three boys accept Rajam too and the six boys are temporarily at peace. Later, a prominent Indian politician is arrested and Swami joins a mob of protesters.
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. But their groups begin to break when a new boy Rajam enrolls in their school.

Swami and Friends is the first novel written by R. Narayan, the classic Indian English writer. The novel is set in pre-independence era and revolves around a ten year old kid, Swaminathan, living in Malgudi. This is the first novel in the trilogy of novels written by Narayan , the next two novels in the series being, The Bachelor of Arts and The English Teacher. The trilogy beautifully describes the three stages of life- childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Swami and Friends is written in episodic form, with daily adventures of the naughty,hyper active Swami and his four friends — Somu, the Monitor, who carried himself with such an easy air; Mani the mighty Good-For-Nothing; Sankar, the most brilliant boy of the class and Samuel who was known as the Pea, who had nothing outstanding about him, like Swami, but they were united in their ability to laugh at everything.
