    Not a review, this one, my little homage to a novel I found original and beautiful.I remember I read it when I was in my mid twenties, on a train from Milan to that wonderful city that us Copenhagen Although this novel appears to be, at first sight, realistic, there is magic in it I say it in inverted commas because what I mean by it is not any sorcery, but that this novel, I strongly believe, has a soul It breathes, it has an energy going through it, in waves, from beginning to end I can Not a review, this one, my little homage to a novel I found original and beautiful.I remember I read it when I was in my mid twenties, on a train from Milan to that wonderful city that us Copenhagen Although this novel appears to be, at first sight, realistic, there is magic in it I say it in inverted commas because what I mean by it is not any sorcery, but that this novel, I strongly believe, has a soul It breathes, it has an energy going through it, in waves, from beginning to end I can t quite put my finger on it, unlike other styles, I have not worked out its secrets this soul is there, yet I have never been able to find how it was created by Narayan And what did I expect from a novel on the Great Soul What better way to talk about Mahatmaji than by breathing a bit of his immense soul into the words of the novel Waiting for the Mahatma may still and probably always will be a mystery to me, but it a mystery I love and don t ...
