The first story in the book is "A murder in Mussoorie". There are many intriguing stories in the book like the bar, Kipling's Simla, the train night at Deoli, etc. I loved them all. Kipling has been mentioned in each story via means of a character or his quote and the praise of the beauty of nature is quite evident in the book.
The way Ruskin Bond has described each story is just marvelous. I read short stories like this after a long time. The writing is very simple but elegant enough to keep the readers hooked up until the end. The cover of the book is also nice. It was a good read.
🍃A Murder in Mussoorie, about a murder that happened there and the investigations which was being analysed by Arthur Conan Doyle with the help of Rudyard Kipling.
🍃The Kipling Road tells the history of the road and the memories of the narrator attached to that road.
🍃Time stops at Shamli is the story i was most excited about and it became my one of the favorites from this Collection. It is about a man, randomly decided to go to Shamli and the types of people he met and most importantly Sushila. Who is she? Just read the story!
🍃 Kipling's Simla is about how Kipling viewed Simla and the phrases and poems he wrote about it.
🍃The Night train at Deoli is my most favourite, even though this is the shortest. It is about the narrator searching for his love, whom he knew would not get.This is more similar to Time stops at Shamli.
🍃The Bar that time forgot is another beautiful story, which is about an old bar and the people who came there. How the bar made them together and how time made everyone forget about that, except for one.
🍃The Bent-Double Beggar is the most interesting one. It is obviously about the bent-double beggar,how he became a beggar and life lessons by him.
🍃The last Tonga ride is yet another beautiful story of a young boy living with his grandmother.
🍃A love of long ago is a touching story of a man and his childhood lover.
🍃 Calypso Christmas is a fun read, unlike others. It is about the narrator's Christmas celebration with his friend and his family.
This is a book written in simple language, but the writing still has the magic to keep the readers hooked on.The best part about all these stories are that, everything is so realistic, especially the love stories. It also teaches life lessons.A quick and beautiful read. Highly recommended!
