Abstract
Indo-Anglian literature is the window through which the people of the world can peep in India to know what really it is. The Indo-Anglian writers of fiction write with an eye and hope on the western readers. R.K. Narayan is not only a novelist but also a short story writer. In his novels and short stories Indianness, nationalism and patriotism and glorification of India's past can be vividly observed. R.K. Narayan was a prolific Indian writer whose stories and novels provide witty and perceptive observations about Indian culture and society. He received the Sahitya Akedemi Award for The Guide in 1958.
