The novel, The Guide, is set in the fictional town of Malgudi, in southern India.
The title refers to the character of Raju, who is the narrator and the driving force of the story.
The novel is told through a series of flashbacks, in which the reader learns about the characters’ pasts. Raju, the protagonist, grows up near a train station and becomes a shopkeeper and then a resourceful tour guide.
He is highly intelligent and able to think on his feet.
He is also quite shrewd, so he is able to get the most out of situations.
We find the slyness, dishonesty and gullibility of Margaya, the blatant pomposity of Mr. Sampath, the adventurousness of Mali, the romantic excess of Sitaram, and the mystical learning of Chandran.
In the nutshell, Raju is one of the most complex characters in Narayan.
