Sudhin Ghose' work is listed as one of the things that gave Ruskin Bond great joy during his formative years, and this was the primary reason why I had thought about reading it, being an earnest Ruskin Bond fan. The book, however was very disappointing for me personally since it is not about nature writing at all. It is basically a children's story in magic realism about growing up and schooling. The writing though interesting and creative, is mostly dialogue between the characters, and does not contain lyrical prose that is what I had probably erroneously hoped for.
heartwarming story about a group of little children who along with pets study in an abandoned estate run by Sister Svenska and her helpers. With anecdotes and adventures in their own little bubble, the happiness acts as a protective cloud against things that don’t herald a welcome to the odd group. However, when a big corporation threatens to burst their little cozy bubble of love and innocence, they band together to fight for it. A delightful tale about childhood, innocence, unconditional love and emotions, this tale was the first in the quartet and managed to make me cry at the end! A definite pick up if you are looking for a light, emotional read!
