About the Author
From the Publisher
In Conversation with Ruskin Bond
I have been writing stories, sketches, poems and novels for over 65 years, and the greatest pleasure has come from writing about the natural world in my vicinity—wherever I may have been living.
When I came to live in Mussoorie just over fifty years ago, I lived in Maplewood Lodge, a cottage below Wynberg-Allen School. Its windows opened on to a well-forested hillside. So naturally I wrote about the trees, wild flowers and birds and other creatures who lived among them. Then circumstances forced me to move higher up the mountain, and for the last thirty-five years I have lived on the top floor of Ivy Cottage, in Landour Cantonment
re windows too, and they open on to sky, clouds, the Doon valley, and range upon range of mountains. And from this perch on the hillside I feel that I am part of the greater world, mother India as well as the natural world of planet Earth.
Humankind took over the earth from the dinosaurs, who perished due to natural upheavals and dramatic climate changes. We could go the same way, as we have proved to be bad tenants with little or no regard for the natural world that we have inherited.
But I do not despair. Dawn gives way to daybreak and daybreak to sunrise. And when the sun bursts through my windows and streams across my little room, I look forward to another great day on the planet Earth. We must cherish each day as though it is our last.
Some of these pieces have appeared before in magazines or newspapers. A few are recent. Several have not been published between book covers.
I dedicate this book to all who cherish the green world of India, its forests, fields, streams and sacred rivers. Nature sustains us. Let us not do away with our natural inheritance.

🍃 Almost always, it’s the unexpected that thrills us.
⛅ It may only be a shaft of sunlight, slanting through the pillars of banyan 🌳 tree;
🕸️ or dewdrops caught in a spider’s web; or
🏞️ in the stillness of the mountains, the sudden chattter of a mountain stream as you round the bend of a hill;
🌊 or an emperor’s first glimpse of a winding river and the world beyond...
Delight cannot be planned for—she makes no appointments!

A must read for someone who loves, appreciates and acknowledges nAtUrE..& finds serenity and tranquility in it.
Sir Ruskin Bond writes about the natural world in his vicinity..
the trees, wildflowers, birds, other creatures..
He cherishes the green world of India, it's forests, fields, streams...
Alongwith his prose on love for nature, he weaves his words bEaUtiFuLly reminincing on his memories associated respectively..
The CRUX of this read:
Nature sustains us & we need to appreciate it and live in tandem with it.
Humans/ homo sapiens need to understand, we cannot survive as a monologue but a... dialogue.
🍁 Anyone who is fond of creativity, loves nature, enjoys NoStALgic reads will surely devour it.
A mini-personal-encyclopedia of Sir Ruskin Bond..
It made me reinterpret the importance of those childhood experiences of mine which felt mundane yet were imprinted into my mind, snippets of time that I reimagined and relived whenever life got too hard to handle.
"And you, dear reader, will have similar impressions to carry with you all your days.. Someone who gave you a flower, a kiss on the forehead. To the end of your days you will carry that kiss with you. And it may protect you from all harm."
The part that touched me post is the dead treas and the ending chapter. The way he explains some things made me nostalgic. This feeling is great.
Amazon truly delivered A to Z with great care.
It always stands true in delivering quality of service with quality products
I recommend all interested people to go for JBL without any hesitation
