About the Show : Malgudi - a fictious small town in south India is typical of any small town or village, habituated by timeless characters who could be living anywhere in the world. They are simple folk, dealing with their lives in an uniquely engaging, humorous and humane manner. Famous Indian novelist R.K Narayan, drew on his observance of human life to create the magic of Malgudi Days. Episode Synopsis: Little Swamy, like all timid children, sucks his thumb and sleeps near his devoted, story - telling grandmother. Father is quite annoyed at this mollycoddling and cleverly provokes his son into a show of courage: he is to sleep all alone in his office that very night. And so, he drags the reluctant child to the office while the women in the family look on helplessly. A petrified Swamy sleeps fitfully' dreams and reality merge' but the next morning the little boy wakes up "A Hero" - with a special invitation to join the police force. Swamy abounds in the adulation and praise, while Father is pleased to know his son's photograph has appeared in the local newspapers. Rushing in one night to break the good news, he finds Swamy back to his old ways one night of manhood is enough for the boy. R.K. Narayan pits the age - old courage vs. strength theory - either you have it in you or you don't.
