Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard Summary

Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard by Kiran Desai

This is the story of Sampath Chawla, born in a time of drought into a family not quite like other families, in a town not quite like other towns. After years of failure at school, failure at work, of spending his days dreaming in the tea stalls and singing to himself in the public gardens, it does not seem as if Sampath is going to amount to much. "But the world is round", says his grandmother. "Wait and see! Even if it appears he is going downhill, he will come out on the other side. Yes, on top of the world. He is just taking the longer route". No one believes her, until one day Sampath climbs a guava tree in search of peaceful contemplation and becomes unexpectedly famous as a holy man. In Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard, Kiran Desai tells a wryly hilarious and poignant story of life, love, and family relationships, simultaneously capturing the vivid culture of the Indian subcontinent and the universal intricacies of human experience.
