The best of a lifetime of stories from a short story writer of rare distinction.
Ruskin Bond???s stories are predominantly set in the beautiful hill country of Garhwal where he has made his home for the last twenty-five years. Some of these stories present people who, consciously or otherwise, need each other: people in love or in need of love, the awkward adolescent and the timid lover. Some are gently satirical studies about village and small-town braggarts and petty officials.
Several others mourn the gradual erosion of the beauty of the hills (and the gentle people who live in them) with the coming of the steel and dust and worries of modern civilization. All the stories are rewarding for their compassionate portrayal of love, loss, accomplishment,

A Splendid Collection of short pieces that lets the weary urban mind get lost; again, and again, in the lovely memories of one's childhood. The greatest feat of this book might be to make you cry and yet, make you feel light at heart, sometimes !
The emotion of Bond's stories are like the deja-vu one goes through while going for indefinite HOLIDAYS, back Home after long or to some place that stays hidden in the cosiest nooks of your memory.
Night Train at Deoli is a collection of 30 short stories of Ruskin Bond.
The stories are simple and thought provoking and pertain to the time the author spent as a child and teenager in the foothills of Himalayas i.e Dehra and Mussorrie.
Most of the stories run into 2 or 3 pages. There are a couple of them which were part of my English syllabus while I was studying in school.
As Bond himself mentions in the preface of the book, his stories are not about espionage, mystery, suspense or murder. Rather these are simple stories of simple folk in the pure and unspoilt land of the hills, forests, the bazaars and its flora and fauna.
Since I belong to the hills probabaly I can relate more to its little towns, villages and its folk. However this is precisely the message Bond tries to convey. i.e he will make you connect and feel the anguish, sorrow, pain and joy of mundane events which many of us do not even register in our minds.
Admist the hustle and bustle of city life and its rat race, Ruskin Bond's stories are the perfect dose to make you think and ponder about the beauty hidden in the simplest of events.
Hats off to Mr. Ruskin Bond.
A Sleepy Indian Railway Station, Natives waiting for the Night Train to Deoli, so, how's this a story? Just, open it & read on, the author fills it with the Magic of Life, in the poorest of the poor, the most mundane of circumstances............throbbing with the suspense, trials & tribulations, ofyet another day spent, in this country of a kind..!! That's Ruskin Bond for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The stories written by Ruskin Bond are an all time favorite companion of young and old alike, especially for those who are fond of travelling and mountains because the stories are basically set on the background of Dehra and Mussoorie...the narration of stories by Mr. Chippy Ganjee is rhythmical and very clear...it reminds us of the good ol' days of our childhood when we used to hear stories from our grannies before falling asleep at night or at leisure times.....this audio book is worth buying and the service is really good...doing a great job..!!!
