Abstract
Rasipuram Krishnaswami Iyer Narayanaswami, popularly known by Graham Greene’s sobriquet R. K. Narayan, is noted for his remarkable gift of story-telling, extraordinary depiction of the ordinary oddities and angularities of the masses, and above all, penetrating portrayal of Indian social reality rooted in tradition, customs and rituals. The world of Narayan’s writings reflects the ideals and values he cherishes and wishes to treasure as the precious heritage of Indian culture. While depicting life as he sees it as a cavalcade of social life passing every day, he finds that it is deep-rooted in the soil of the place. It has its values, mores, norms, customs and conventions followed, preserved, nurtured and protected by people. Narayan presents his concept of traditionalism which is the fountain-head from which his other philosophical concepts such as orthodoxy, superstition and the role of fate in life flow as its inseparable channels, through the middle class life of Malgudi which is his only locale.
