This book is based on the life of a 10-year-old kid named Ringo Banerjee who lives in South Kolkata along with his parents- Meera and Jagdish. He went to DPL Public school and he was in class 5. He was a very creative kid and wanted to spend more time with his parents but his mother was busy in watching TV serials and his father was busier in his job. Nobody was there to talk with him about his day-to-day life and help him in studies. However, Ringo loved and adored his parents and he wanted to spend more time with them. When Ringo turned 10 years old, he was very enthusiastic to do new things and make his parents proud. He was considered as a scout in his school and one day he got a chance to go to Jashimath for an adventure camp. He was not much confident about his approval from his parents but to his surprise, he got permission from them. They were a team of 15 scouts along with two teachers who were their temporary guardians during the camp. Ringo was very excited to go to a faraway place all alone and learn new things. They had a wonderful train journey which included fun games, gossips and activities. When they reached Jashimath, they met with Ravi- their teacher- who would teach them everything during these 10 days. They were given tents to sleep and from the very first day, they started to enjoy their camping and learnt many new things
like mountain climbing, cycling, etc. They were going through a very disciplined life in the camp and Ringo was very happy. One day, when Ringo was roaming around the campus after dinner, he found a human figure wandering round their campus and he imagined him to be a thief but came to know him as a Yogi who lived in the mountains and he didn’t have a particular home. The yogi had many stories to share with Ringo and they became good friends in very few days. Suddenly the weather in Uttarakhand changed and heavy rain started pouring throughout the state. The people in the camp
thought that the weather would improve but it deteriorated more. They were stuck in the main camp and every other camp was washed away due to the heavy rainfall. With a limited source of food and drinking water, this was a situation of life and death. What happened to them? Were they rescued or they lost their lives?
Amazing advenurous story.
This is not merely an adventurous story,but also it creates awareness about 'To protect the Nature' otherwise cloudburst, floods like calamities oftenly occur & destroy our beautiful earth one day. It also tells when this types of calamities occur, how to deal with them.
Children's will definately enjoy the story & also learn good lesson from it.
Recommended for all age group.
Overall fantastic read.
I like the part where it shows Ringo, an innocent kid's wish to spend more time with his father, to have that father-son bond. His want to be appreciated for his great skills in painting and scouting, rather than being judged for his bad grades in studies. Everything becomes quite relatable and that's what makes you keep on reading.
But adding in the story the event of the cloudburst which happened in Uttarakhand and the mysterious Yogi friend that Ringo meets on his expedition, adds to the charm of the story.
It's a perfect book that children will enjoy, especially reading about how bravely Ringo handled the difficult time of the calamity is something every kid will look up to . It's very simple and easy to read, relate and comprehend, with moralistic approach towards its theme, which I liked.
Totally recommend this book for children and their sweet parents .
