    Description

    A Book of Simple Living, by Ruskin Bond, brings the author’s brief notes from the hills. In these pages, readers will be able to find solace and inspiration even in the most mundane details of life.

    Summary of the Book

    Based on a lifetime's experience in the hills and small towns of North India, Ruskin Bond chronicles many small moments that constitute a life of peace - with the self, the natural world, friends, family, and even strangers. In this title, readers get to watch a wild plum blossom, see the luminous moon between two deodar trees, hear a redstart whistle and the rain drum on a tin roof, empathise with the ache of losing love, and the consolation of old friends during trying times.

    About Ruskin Bond

    Ruskin Bond was born in Himachal Pradesh, India. He is the recipient of the most honorary Indian awards including Padma Shri, Padma Bhushan and the Sahitya Akademi Award. His contribution to children’s literature in India is specially recognised by the Indian Council for Child Education. His autobiography is called Rain in the Mountains. Scenes from a Writer’s Life talks about the adolescent Ruskin. Some of his books were adapted as films and TV series, which have won several awards. Garland of Memories, A Face in the Dark and Other Hauntings, Vagrants in the Valley and Other Poems and Once upon a Monsoon Time are some of his other works.

    The wonders of a simple life

    This is a wonderful book. Just yesterday, I was reading this book and it made me realize that happiness can be found anywhere and anytime. Ruskin Bond inspires without being pretentious. His writing is simple and innocent and yet profound. You should definitely add this book to your collection. The book cover is also very pretty and the pages are of a good quality.

    A Book Of simple living Ruskin Bond.

    This is one of the most delightful musings of a writer at the age of 80. He talks about his life in the mountains of Mussourie amongst the Himalayas. He describes the flora and fauna of the place and emphasizes the total contentment he feels living with his adopted family. He tells us that total happiness is but fleeting and to be content is what is right to aim for. One need not climb every mountain (as the song says) but be satisfied with one's achievements as one nears the end . Of cours...
