About the Book

The India Ruskin Bond loves does not make the headlines. But lie finds it wherever he goes-in field or forest, town or village, mountain or desert-and in the hearts and minds of people who have given him love and affection for the better part of a lifetime.

In this collection of prose and Poems written specially for this book, Ruskin Bond looks back on his unique relationship with the country and its people, from the time he turned his back on the West and came home, still only a boy, to take up the challenge of being a writer in a changing India.

Ruskin Bond writes straight from the heart. He is at his best when writing about all that he cares for-his adopted family, his friends, his writing, the mountains, roads, rivers, and small towns that are all a part of the India he loves.
