He tells that if all the people of India go and spit on England, that is more than enough to submerge the whole England. I personally think it is quite true, unless one disproves it by actually making millions spit on England.
Swami also thinks it is true and asks Mani if they can attempt that. Mani replies saying Europeans are very bad guys and they will shoot them. This chapter progresses in such a manner and engages reader with non-stop fun. Swami's encounters with the Board school headmaster is also equally enjoyable.
The attitude of that headmaster took me back to my school days when some of my teachers used to carry canes to beat students and treat the students as their slaves. Swami becomes a super-hero when he grabs and throws the cane away when the headmaster attempts to beat him. After that, his conscience makes him feel sad and leads to other troubles.

Swami and Friends
The letter they write to Binns sports shop in Madras and the other happenings are great to read. On the whole, Swami and Friends is an amazing novel and I do not think I would be reading a better novel ever.
The novel took me to my school days and I could relate many of the Swami's experiences to my own. This novel is an unadulterated and absolutely thorough portrayal of a child's life.
It is rather unfortunate that most of the present day children have their so called intelligence suppressing innocence associated with their age.
Having said that, I am sure that one can find many children like Swami in Indian villages even today.
This novel is a must read for any one who want to roll back their years and enjoy the innocent moments of their life. That was my first ever real encounter with this title. Secondly, while lazing away in the air-conditioned interiors of a bookstore in Chennai, my eyes came over this little book, and the fact that it was comparatively cheap made me buy it. But I tell you that is about all I remember, after that I was transported to Malgudi.
The story is about a boy, Swaminathan. He lives with his parents, and most importantly his Grandmother. And then comes his friends, of whom Mani and Rajam are the closest.
The story culminates with the founding of the M. Though fictious, the description is only too real.
Friends, read this! Happy reading. But even when he tries hard he has trouble understanding a question about the price of mangoes: Swami then gazed and gazed at this sum, and every time he read it, it seemed to acquire a new meaning. He had the feeling of having stepped into a fearful maze His mouth began to water at the thought of mangoes.
I will tell you whether the fruits were ripe or not, afterwards. Now read the sum. Come on. Swami keeps wrestling with the problem and side tracks himself with irrelevant distractions including the thought that if father wanted to know the price of mangoes so badly, he should go to the market himself. With more help from his dad he eventually gets it right but immediately bursts into tears.
I was reminded, rather painfully on both counts, of driving my own father to distraction at my complete failure to grasp simple to him mathematical concepts and a very similar reaction for me when trying to do the same with my son.
Like many small boys Swami is often unsure of himself and looks for assurance from his peers. Apart from the obvious works where political awareness and consciousness is apparent for example, Waiting for the Mahatma and The Painter of Signs and even Mr.
Swami and Friends by R.K Narayan: Summary and Critical Analysis
It was a response to the impact of British woven cloth on the domestic product and the brutal tactics of some colonial manufacturers who cut off the thumbs of some Indian weavers. Swami gets caught up in a riot and has lathi-bearing policemen bearing down on him.
This is serious peril and Narayan does not make light of it, although he takes pains to say the policeman reaching Swami, tapped him lightly on the head with his lathi.
The major driver for Swami and his friends is then formation of a cricket team to play a challenge match. This represents the highpoint of his friendship with Rajam and Mani in particular. They organise themselves in an efficient manner, if not an entirely realistic one, especially their approach to the cricket supply company. They also have a naive belief that the government will help them with gear.
Typical Narayan touch. School parade drill prevents him from getting to cricket practice and Swami ends up in front of the headmaster for skipping drill: Swami had done so because he believed a doctor who told Swami he would tee it up with the school.
When he is hauled up before the headmaster, Swami realises the doctor has deceived him and was not treating him seriously so he learns a valuable lesson about adults.
He told himself that it was unnecessary to enter the hospital, but in fact he knew that he lacked the courage. That very window in which a soft dim light appeared might have behind it the cot containing Swaminathan all pulped and bandaged.Shiokari Pass. Write your review. This novel is a must read for any one who want to roll back their years and enjoy the innocent moments of their life. They are all kind and considerate, but they are also weak and hesitative.
He also invited them to his home which played a vital role in suppressing the enmity.
