Stories from a Peripatetic Kitchen – The New Indian Express

By Supriya Sharma | July 4, 2015 When Rukmini Srinivas, then teaching at Queen Mary’s College in Madras, was first introduced to author R K Narayan by her husband in 1955, she had not heard of him or read his Swami and Friends. “I had grown up with Thomas Hardy and Somerset Maugham,” she writes in her cookbook-cum-memoir Tiffin, adding, “and had not heard of R K Narayan till I visited Mysore.” But that meeting was the start of a life-long friendship.
