ABOUT THE BOOK

Humans respond differently to relationships & situations. This trait is attributed to the theory of Modes of Nature or Gunas. This book reflects on the conundrum of life and offers multiple answers related to the self. By focusing on the men protagonists in RK Narayan's novels, the book contemplates on human behavior through the lens of three Gunas- Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.
