A Tiger For Malgudi is narrated by a tiger named Raja, in first person. Raja recounts the time he was captured by the owner of a circus, and how he managed to escape. He then enjoys his youth in the wild jungles of India. As time passes by, he has a litter with a tigress, and spends his time bringing them up. One day, he finds out that his entire family had been killed at the hands of hunters, and then decides to take his revenge. He begins to move through the nearby villages, attacking the livestock and cattle. He is then captured by several poachers, who send him to a zoo located in Malgudi. Life takes a turn for Raja when he finds himself stuck with a brutal trainer, who doesn’t give him enough food, and forces him to perform certain tricks in the circus. He kills his trainer one day as he is unable to bear being tormented. He then creates a ruckus in the town, but gets captured again. Who captures Raja this time? What lessons does Raja learn under his new owner? Is his life still misfortunate? Narayan has portrayed the different phases in the life of a man, through the life of Raja. By the end of the book, the readers will begin to place themselves in the tiger’s spot, making them feel one with him. Written in Narayan’s classic witty style, A Tiger For Malgudi is definitely worth a read for all age groups.
