    This is one of his dull and depressing works Through out the plot, the vendor of sweets Jagan comes across as a weakling and coward afraid to confront any adverse situation Rather he prefers to stealthily sneak away This attitude of his s spoils his son Mali and ultimately emotionally forces him to go away from his own house Jagan also frequently appears to be torn between choice of making money and leading an austere life This confusion and his inability to address it exposes his duplicity.

    I happened to be reading this book while I was visiting the same house where RK Narayan penned his books The Vendor of Sweets made me chuckle in a few places there is the typical Narayan wry wit and the philosophical undertones that characterizes his work An enjoyable read.

    Written in the late 60s and probably set at about the same time I don t know the history well enough to pinpoint clues are the increasing use of private motorcars in provincial cities, the liquor prohibition laws which provide a pivotal plot point, a 60 year old who went to jail as a youth for civil disobedience as a follower of Ghandi and some sort of early computer The story is loosely about the old India versus the new The son of the titular sweetshop proprietor goes off to America for a couple of years to become a writer and returns with a business scheme, a Korean American woman to whom it scandalously turns out that he is not married, wearing suits and expressing a lot of impatience with his perception of India s backwardness His father falls back on tradition and spirituality partly as a way to avoid conflict with his son, and reminisces fondly on his own arranged marriage in a couple of elegaic chapters The business scheme itself, hardly addressed, seems almost satire perhaps Narayan intended some commentary on overseas businessmen coming into exploit local investors who are easily dazzled by talk of progress.

    I find it hard to review this book, or even to pin down what I liked so much about it Mostly, I think I enjoyed the window into a life with very different touchstones and sign posts from my own.The main character is perhaps not surprisingly a person who owns a store that makes and sells candy in the Indian village where he lives and grew up We gradually get to know him and the world as seen by him The people who work in his shop, his son whose point of view would probably be familiar to me which makes it even wonderful that we don t see the world through his eyes , and a lot of wonderful characters like a man who claims to be related to everybody and seems to mostly go around talking with people all day and mooching off of them although in a wonderful, relaxed way.Really enjoyable.

    Typical R K Narayan story. sweet, simple centered in malgudi portraying the later age days of a genuine, selfless and satyagrahi turned sweet shop owner His life is full of grief due to society and above all his own spoilt son Narayan has beautifully portraid the helplessness of an indian father with his traditional values against his son returned from america with a girl and a lot of foolishness.Enjoy to read and it is very sad but practical to understand the feelings of jagan, the shop owner against all odds.

    Jagan es un exitoso vendedor de dulces que vive bajo las ense anzas de Gandhi mientras que su hijo Mali es un hombre de mundo , un hombre que nunca ha tenido que lograr algo por esfuerzo propio y que est decidido a vivir a costa de su padre El libro nos ense a mucho sobre la cultura y tradiciones de la India A m me ha dejado con ganas de saber m s.En cuanto a la historia tiene un buen mensaje dejad que los hijos se hagan responsables de sus cosas y su vida Una dosis de vida carcelaria no la hace mal a nadie Puede ser Justo lo que el chico necesita.
