    This afternoon, the choice is yours: either relaxing with a book over looking the sacred lakes, a traditional canoe ride over the misty lakes, another great trek. At nightfall, head into "down town" Wana Giri for a dinner at one of our favorite restaurant. Description. UNDER THE BANYAN TREE & OTHER STORIES. Under the banyan tree and other stories Narayan’s characters, observed with a wry and compassionate eye, come from every area of Indian society-merchants,beggars, hersmen, hermits,teachers, rogues- and represent in miniature a wealth of human experience. The garment was a clumsy thing, a long loose shapeless sheet that had to be wound around her hips and under an arm and over a shoulder, its dangling fringes carefully layered and displayed. Wound too loose, it was like to fall off; wound too tight, it would tangle, trip and bind. Get this from a library! Under the banyan tree and other stories. [R K Narayan] -- A collection of stories about characters from every walk of Indian life - merchants, beggars, herdsmen, rogues - all of whose lives are microcosms of the human experience.
