Abstract (in English): 

The Vendor of Sweets (1967), by R. K. Narayan, is the biography of a fictional character named Sri K. V. Jagan who is a sweet vendor of (a fictional Indian town) Malgudi. His conflict with his estranged son and how he finally leaves for renunciation, overwhelmed by the sheer pressure and monotony of his life is beautifully reflected in the story.
