Such moments in the novel raises questions about the very nature of his relationship with her. They move away from us as we move away from them. Krishna's conundrums, losses, searches are strikingly ours too. Not all of the idiomatic expressions translate easily and this makes for a more careful read. Leela, on the other hand, goes to a preschool where Krishna gets to meet the headmaster, a profound man who cared for the students in his school and teaches them moral values through his own methods.
Narayan was born in Madras, South India, in 1906, and educated there and at Maharaja's College in Mysore. He stated that this had greatly perturbed his peace of mind in the other region and earnestly requested that his desire should be made known. But that requires a lot of hidden emotions and a lot of untold stories to unravel in front of so many others. However, it picks up pace midway and gets very good for the last quarter. Narayan does not write in a particularly complicated way. A little bit too literally, I must s I swear that if anyone else, any other author would have crafted the story line similar to this book, I would have hated him. I think I can agree with all the positive comments that people have made.
Narayan's other books that leave the readers with a sense of happiness and satisfaction, 'The English Teacher' leaves the readers with a lump in their throats that doesn't go down for a few days after finishing reading and the readers can't help but mull over and make conscious efforts to disconnect themselves from the masterpiece. Not that because it's morbid, tragic and touching. Yet, if you are a Narayan fan, I would still go ahead and recommend this book to you. However, Susila eventually succumbs and passes away. Narayanan's fans will certainly love this work. All struggle and misery in life is due to our attempt to arrest this law or get away from it or in allowing ourselves to be hurt by it. Author Atir would like to do the moral ambiguity bit, and would like to frame it with an undercover-story-gone-wrong.
With their welfare on his hands, Krishna learns to be a proper husband and learns how to accept the responsibility of taking care of his family. Silver service and probably the best value meal we had in India. The first part of this particular book is brilliant and extremely touching but the second part moves into very unexpected territory, leaving one a bit confused. My best day in India and one of my best travelling days ever. It is only after her death, he becomes a lover. The whole thing weirded me out. Hope to read more of his work soon.

Despite the steely cover, spies are human; they fall in love, grow attached, and can have fun while living in a foreign land.
The Hebrew and Arabic accents sounded Russian or German or something. What made this wonderful was the way he wrote, feeling like I expect India feels. Somehow I feel all readers can identify the protagonist as themselves. The English Teacher is billed as a thriller, but it's not. This is a book for a serious reader and someone who enjoys the complexity of a mystery unfolding. The story combines original comedy, a touching partly dramatic climax and a feel good plot that comes together perfectly. The novel is primary a story of a Brahmin man and his world.
Krishna, an English teacher in the town of Malgudi, nagged by the feeling he's doing the wrong work, is nonetheless delighted by his domestic life, where his wife and young daughter wait for him outside the house every afternoon.

The English Teacher is about an English teacher, who has been working away from his young family for a while at a university in the Malgudi universe, the setting of many of Narayan's other works. It doesn't make sense that Rachel calls Ehud. When we suffer the tragic loss of a near and dear one, it is impossible to forget that person, no matter how many years pass by.
