Ruskin Bond is of course one of my favorite authors. Whenever I feel sad or tensed I always perefer reading his books. This time too I picked this book because I was little scarred of my exams and studies. This book made me feel better.
In this book Ruskin Bond is explaining about the villages near the river Ganga. The villages he had visited while living in the mountains. Rudraprayag, Tunganath, Badrinath and so many places and their history, terrain features, temples in the bank of holy Ganga, the common people etc are explained in different stories. It was like a, travelling along with Bond through the banks of holy Ganga kind an experience! Now I feel I should visit those places.
Besides the stories about the bank of Ganga, there some other stories about the hills too. His favorite trees, birds, people and about Bibiji, an old woman who helped Ruskin in his younger age as a writer. For me this book was a pleasant light stress free read.
mighty Himalayas and mother nature. Amazing and as always wonderful to read!!
