In Malgudi, Raju begins his career as the most mendacious and therefore most successful tourist guide far and wide. He discovers a dancer among his customers, and as her impresario he quickly gets money and honors - until he ends up in prison as a result of minor irregularities. After his release, he seeks refuge in an abandoned temple, and in no time he becomes - would he have thought it himself? - to the guru of the village. He gives good advice, spiritual instruction, and eats good food. Soon he will be venerated as a saint. What begins so happily, finally becomes dangerous: When the drought breaks out, the village community expects their Swami to change the mind of the rain gods through fasting and prayers, even real martyrdom.
