Description

The India I Love is an expression of Ruskin Bond’s reminiscences on his stay in India, his relationship with Britain, on writing, and much more.

Summary Of The Book

The India I Love is a collection of Ruskin Bond’s reflections on various aspects of his life in India over the years. It is composed of prose and poems which share the same nature as Ruskin Bond’s earlier works, they come straight from the heart. Ruskin Bond expresses the very things that create the Indian flavor and distinguish it as unique. The nineteen chapters which make up The India I Love touch upon the various joys and sorrows of life in India and his relationship to it. Because of the use of simple words and phrases, the book connects easily with the readers.

The India I Love begins with Ruskin’s views on education, recounting the experience of watching young boys go to school every day. With characteristic wit and humor, Ruskin tackles the subject of celibacy with respect to his own life. As he shares from the pages of his diary, readers are gradually acquainted with his life in London. As the chapters move onto the description of his life living high up in the Himalayas, he writes about the scenic rivers, mountains, hills, valleys, and the holy places surrounding him. The readers are made aware of the various people he meets and the various idiosyncrasies they display.

The final chapters speak to the reader about his writing life, the challenges, joys and successes of being a writer by profession. Ruskin also passes on invaluable advice for aspiring writers. Ruskin Bond’s writing style in The India I Love maintains the flavors associated with his past work. He keeps the language simple and stays authentic in his writings. His powerful wit and utmost humility goes straight to the heart of the reader.

A heartwarming collection of poems & essays

If you’re a Ruskin Bond fan you’d be well aware how his simple writing has the poignant charm of no two sentences ever being similar. The positive attitude with a gentle yet warming sense of humor makes reading his essays and poems a joyful experience.

At the risk of repeating myself, I have to say that this book is another masterpiece of simplicity at its magnanimous best. Every chapter is filled with pages from author’s personal life and at places also has entries from his personal diary. ...

Through this collection, the author conveys to his readers the reasons that make him love India so much. India is home to him and in his home in the mountains he feels more at home than anywhere else in the world....
