The Blue Umbrella (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 55

The Blue Umbrella is a stirring novel about the simple yet generous minds of children by the author Ruskin Bond.

Summary Of The book

The Blue Umbrella is a novel set in the mountainous Gharwal region. The story is about a little girl called Binya, who on falling upon a group of picnickers, is enchanted by a beautiful blue umbrella belonging to one of them. Incidentally, one of the ladies in the group takes a liking to Binya’s leopard claw necklace and offers to buy it from her. When Binya refuses, she is asked to choose anything that she would like in return for it and she chooses the blue umbrella. After much pleading, the lady consents to her wish and Binya becomes the proud owner of the umbrella.

But, what happens when the village shopkeeper sets his eyes on the very same umbrella and decides to have it for himself? Binya’s precious umbrella becomes the source of envy to him and he tries his utmost to get it from her. What follows is a story of greed, ignominy and kindness.

The book was adapted into a movie called The Blue Umbrella in 2005 and which was later awarded the National Film Award for Best Children’s Film.

Rendezvous with Pure Innocence

Childhood is the most beautiful time period of a person's life. We all want something badly when we are kids. But pure innocence is in the mentality of giving.

Binya is just another child, who, one fine day comes across a beautiful Blue Umbrella. She also possesses a beautiful Locket. She sacrifices one dear possession for acquiring another. The Umbrella becomes her best friend.

Wherever she goes, the umbrella goes with her. Her cattle and her brother accompany the two. The relation between Binya and the umbrella is a sort of ‘Heart to Heart’ relationship. Though the two can’t talk to

The blue umbrella

This is a meaningful story.The author Ruskind Bond has magic in this story .he clears the situation of each and every part of this story.Biny's politeness and her sacrifice makes the story more lively and interesting .The most valuable and heart touching part of the story is--The part where Binya gave her umbrella to Ram Bhorosa even after knowing that he tried to steal it from her.This is really a nice part of this story.
