Otherwise a very good, clean copy. Jpgs. available on request. "Waiting For Mahatma" is set in southern India, in the fictional village of Malgudi, during the final years of the country's struggle for Independence from the British Empire.--The author is a classic teller of tales, totally irreverent in his use of humor and irony. His straightforward prose is graceful and highly readable. -- The author perfectly portrays the small village and its peoples concerns, trials and tribulations, and juxtaposes them against Mahatma Gandhi's take on the big picture and love for his people" (J.L. Perskie)
