Swami And Friends, Paperback / softback Book

Swami And Friends Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Ten-year-old Swaminathan is living in exciting times.

The sleeping giant of India is beginning to stir to the dwelling reverberations which herald the great struggle for independence.

But it's all rather confusing for the boy. For like his family and friends, Swami has been immutably moulded by his British rulers - and though he might happily demonstrate against them, he wouldn't dream of missing cricket practice.
