Although, this theme has been dealt by a number of British and American novelists in there fiction, but Narayan has dealt with this theme in an efficient manner. Unlike his novel, The Man of Malgudi, in the present novel, The Guide, he has chosen only onefigure, Raju, an embodiment of both the traits good evil. How this conflict between good and evil leads to his catastrophe , is the central concern of the present novel, The Guide.
