5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful tale
By Bookishlysane on 3 November 2022
What a sweet little novella! A tale of attachment, jealousy, greed, remorse and forgiveness.
Ruskin Bond gives the readers a cute and short story about a little girl named Binya and her blue umbrella.
Binya is fated to discover blue umbrella when few adults have a picnic. As soon as she saw the umbrella, her interest on it was piqued and she must have it. She gives up leopard claw pendant for this.
Soon, wherever Binya goes, the umbrella is seen too.
This attracts a lot of admiration and jealousy from the villagers.

Ram Bharosa, a tea shop owner near the bus stand is one among the villagers who is also attracted to the umbrella.
Soon his wanting turns into greed and before anything else, he has set his mind to steal it from Binya when another kid volunteers to bring it to him for three rupees.

Read on to find what happens.
