Publisher's Summary

Malgudi Ka Chalta Purza is the Hindi translation of R.K. Narayan’s English novel The Financial Expert (1952), where he explores the themes of greed and lust for money. The story takes place in the fictional town of Malgudi. Margayya is a petty money-lender who operates his business under the banyan tree in front of the bank. As his business flourishes though, he is faced with opposition and threats from the bank employees, forcing him to think of an alternative career. Angered with this humiliation, he vows to become a wealthy man.  

With blessings from Goddess Lakshmi and business collaborations with his new friend Dr Pal, who writes Kama Sutra-style literature, Margayya is able to improve his financial and social position, flexing his muscles every now and then to resolve matters. However, his spoilt son, Balu, keeps creating troubles for him with his irresponsible behaviour leading to many unpleasant situations. Margayya also develops animosity against Dr Pal on finding out that he is acting as a bad influence over his son and vows to save himself and his family from Dr Pal. Will he succeed this time?

Narayan is a Sahitya Akademi Award-winning author, most famous for his stories and novels set in the fictional South Indian town of Malgudi, which was first introduced in his novel Swami and His Friends (1935).
