      Raja Rao (), a path-breaker of Indian writing in English, was born in Hassan, Mysore. After he graduated from Madras University, he went on to the University of Montpellier in France on a scholarship. He moved to the United States in , where he taught at the University of Texas at Austin until , when he retired as emeritus Reviews: 5. Kanthapurais Raja Rao‟s first published novel. It is different from his other novels, for a while, besides other things, it is also a novel of physical or surface action, they hardly contain anything of physical action; in fact, what we find in them may at best called intellectual or spiritual action.

      In Companions by Raja Rao we have the theme of sacrifice, torment, acceptance, control, struggle, respect and happiness. Taken from his Collected Stories collection the story is narrated in the first person by an unnamed narrator and after reading the story the reader realises that Rao may be exploring the theme of sacrifice.   A powerful and profound writer, and a superb stylist, Rao successfully and imaginatively appropriated English for the Indian narrative. He was honoured with India s second-highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan, in , the Sahitya Akademi Award in , and the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in Reviews: 5.

    Raja Rao was born in and died around the year In , I finally met him in Austin, Texas, where he lived. But ever since I began writing and publishing in the late s, I have been mistaken for Raja Rao. My name has been printed as Raja Rao in the newspapers hundreds of times. These howlers have proved costly. Raja Rao has been celebrated as one of the first chronicler of the “Indian” way of life. His style and technique are uniquely Indian and aim at carving out an Indian identity through a genre that is essentially Western. This paper seeks to examine this art story-telling and the use of of narrative technique as deployed by Raja Rao in his novel.

Rao's novels on the obvious level depict the human condition than delineating any particular nation or ethnic group. The fictional house of raja Rao is fabricated on the Metaphysical and linguistic speculation of the Indians, hence his novels are highly acclaimed in all the generations for ages.

The Early Life of Raja Rao. Some people make a prolific and unique place for themselves in this world and Raja Rao was one of them. This great and magnificent novelist was born in a Brahmin family. His father used to teach Kannada and his mother was a homemaker. Raja lost his mother when he was at a tender age of 4.

Raja Rao (8 November – 8 July ) was an Indian writer of English-language novels and short stories, whose works are deeply rooted in metaphysics. The Serpent and the Rope (), a semi-autobiographical novel recounting a search for spiritual truth in Europe and India, established him as one of the finest Indian prose stylists and won him the Sahitya Akademi Award in   Raja Rao (Kannada: ರಾಜ ರಾವ್) has long been recognised as "a major novelist of our age."

Raja Rao, with Mulk Raj Anand and R. Narayan, is generally regarded as one of the most important modern Indian English novelists. The reasons for his preeminence are both historical and artistic. Before embarking on writing novels, Raja Rao explored the short story genre through a few short stories, written between and The Cow of the Barricades, a collection of a wide range of stories published by OUP Madras ingathers Rao's very first writing attempts, some of which preceding – and most importantly anticipating.

These lines from Raja Rao’s seminal novel The Serpent and The Rope exemplify, in a sense, his approach to writing.

For many, Raja Rao is one of the three founding pillars of Indian writing in English, along with R.K. Laxman and Mulk Raj Anand. But Rao’s brilliance as an author is not limited to this genre. but in actuality is a myth. There is no element of reality in it. Raja Rao himself discusses these aspects in his novels.

And the history of philosophy -is nothing but a search for a clue to this problem: If I am real, then the world is me. It also means you are not what you think and feel you are, that is, a person.

His stories are both thematically and technically connected with his novels.
