4.0 out of 5 stars Four stars! 🌟
By Damini🌸 on 1 October 2018
The Blue Umbrella is a novella by Ruskin Bond, wherein he weaves a beautiful story of an ordinary village girl Binya and her love for the blue umbrella. Binya traded this beautiful blue umbrella for her only possession, a leopard claw necklace. So, this story is basically about the struggles of Binya to keep the umbrella safe from everyone and how she ended up giving it to someone out of a sudden realisation.

This story conveys multiple emotions, like the happiness for small things, materialistic joys, kindness and jealousy over the beautiful umbrella and it's ends with a beautiful message, that there is more joy in giving, then owning something.❤️

5.0 out of 5 stars A very beautiful novella.
By Khyati Gautam on 13 June 2019
A pretty little umbrella which is blue in color brings unbound happiness in Binya’s life. She carries it everywhere with so much love and affection. There is this old shopkeeper Ram Bharosa who is eyeing this prized possession of the young girl of Garhwal. He tries to have his way and get the umbrella under his paws. Would he be successful?

A simple and short story of kindness and humanity is The Blue Umbrella. In this classic novella, Ruskin paints a vivid image of Garhwal where the story is set. Binya exchanges her leopard’s claw pendant for the blue silk umbrella. And when she comes across the frenzied and despairing state of Ram Bharosa, she does the unimaginable. As she says that an umbrella is not everything. This displays her sensibility and humility. This act of hers opens the heart of the old shopkeeper and positivity flows in. In short, there is a mix of heroism and redemption in this sweet story which is an ideal read for kids but could be equally enjoyed by the adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just awesome.
By Ijaz Ahmed on 21 April 2019
I am new to English language books. So, just want to try out some random books to start my journey in English literature. Found it randomly in Amazon with such a less price. At first I was little shocked to see how tiny and short book it is. But as I start reading it, oh my my...such a beautiful story of a hillside girl. There is nothing extraordinary but it's all about those minute details that the writer protraied with so much affection and in such delightful way. For all those story lovers and who want to start their English literature journey this is a must book written in so simple language that you don't need to look up to dictionary everytime.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ravishing story, which IMO, should be in school books
By Rituraj Shukla on 18 January 2020
This novella is about a mountain girl, Binya, from Garhwal who lives with her mother and brother, Bijju and her cows, Neelu & Gori.

The story narrates the characters around her life and how she fell in love with a blue umbrella and gives away her lucky charm for it and yet gives away the umbrella only to see Ram Bharosa happy.

Binya's story beautifully portrays how life is much more than attachment to materials and that "What goes around comes around" in a positive way.
