The Blue Umbrella is a novella by Ruskin Bond, wherein he weaves a beautiful story of an ordinary village girl Binya and her love for the blue umbrella. Binya traded this beautiful blue umbrella for her only possession, a leopard claw necklace. So, this story is basically about the struggles of Binya to keep the umbrella safe from everyone and how she ended up giving it to someone out of a sudden realisation.
This story conveys multiple emotions, like the happiness for small things, materialistic joys, kindness and jealousy over the beautiful umbrella and it's ends with a beautiful message, that there is more joy in giving, then owning something.❤️
