About Ruskin Bond
Ruskin Bond is an acclaimed Indian writer, perhaps best known for his short stories for children.
In a writing career spanning over six decades, Bond wrote several novels, novellas, poems, vignettes, travelogues, and short stories. His works have been frequently collated and released as a complete collection. Among his most widely read novels are The Room On The Roof, A Flight Of Pigeons, and Delhi Is Not Far. The Eyes Have It and Time Stops At Shamli are among Bond’s most popular short stories.
Written primarily for young readers, his stories use simple language and often eulogize childhood days. Though nature is the prevailing theme in most of his works, he has also dabbled in the genres of mystery and ghost stories.
Born in Kasauli in 1934 in an English family, Bond grew up in the valley towns of Shimla and Dehradun. He studied at Bishop Cotton School, Shimla. His writing received recognition from the very beginning, with his first book, The Room On The Roof, winning the John Llewellyn Rhys prize in 1957. After a brief stint in journalism, Bond settled as a freelance writer in Landour, Mussoorie. His contribution to children's fiction was honoured with the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award in 1992 and the Padma Shri in 1999.
