Rasipuram Krishnaswami Iyer Narayanaswami (better known as R.K. Narayan; 10 October 1906 – 13 May 2001) was an Indian writer and novelist known for his work set in the fictional South Indian town of Malgudi. He was a leading author of early Indian literature in English along with Mulk Raj Anand and Raja Rao.

Mr. Sampath – The Printer of Malgudi is a 1949 novel by R. K. Narayan. It was adapted into the films Mr. Sampat (Hindi, 1952) and a Tamil film sharing the same title (1972).
A comic realist novel of manners, Mr. Sampath marks the first of three Narayan novels that take an external approach, focusing on events outside the protagonist, in contrast to Narayan's more internally-focused earlier novels. The novel is set in 1938 under the British Raj, in the fictional town of Malgudi.

This was certainly an interesting read. Lots of cultural input. At the same time, it was a rather slow read. I think it's the language of a book that was published in 1949. I did not find the book comical. Rather, I thought it was a pretty sad story of high expectations that can ruin lives. I'll try to see if I can find the movie somewhere. It would be interesting to have pictures put to the story.
