of nature. In these heart-warming stories, Bond talks of the various elements of nature as if they
are members of his family. He also endows the flora and fauna that he encounters with distinct

faraway forests they come from, to the winding paths that lead to charming gardens, Petals on the
Ganga will take you to nooks and corners, opening up scenes of myriad beauty.

There’s nothing like being able to see the funny side of things in life. Whether it is a belt that decides to get hooked on to another passenger’s bag, or monkeys who visit and take refuge in the loo or even the omelettes that don’t turn out exactly the way they were intended, Ruskin Bond brings alive each of these situations with wry humour and a generous dose of wit. Party Time in Mussoorie is as much fun to read as it is to attend any of the weird and wonderful parties Ruskin Bond describes in this collection.
