This book is a comparative study of four novels respectively of Raja Rao and R.K. Narayan. Sourcing original works in Sanskrit and Tamil, this study attempts to tease out the similarities in themes and the common concern with traditional Hindu motifs and patterns that underlie these narratives, to reveal these authors' engagement with various aspects of Hinduism, from the 'ontological quest' at its centre to the more contentious caste system.The novels examined are Raja Rao's Kanthapura, The Serpent and the Rope, The Cat and Shakespeare and The Chessmaster and His Moves and R.K. Narayan's The Man-Eater of Malgudi, Mr Sampath, The Guide and The Painter of Signs. In the study, the terms 'mythology' and 'philosophies' include not just the legends and stories of the ancient texts and the associated philosophies, but a whole corpus of social attitudes these generate.

Two comic gems from the father of modern Indian fiction- available in one volume for the first time These two novels show R. K. Narayan at his best, offering enchanting tales of human absurdity that are also skillfully woven parables infused with Hindu mysticism. A Tiger for Malgudi is told from the point of view of the tiger Raja, now old and toothless, who looks back on his life in the circus and in films, and on his dramatic bid to escape the brutish human world in a quest for freedom. The Man-Eater of Malgudi is the story of Nataraj, a mild-mannered printer who stands up to Vasu, a pugnacious taxidermist, when Vasu begins to covet the beloved temple elephant for his collection.
