  • Description

    Autobiographical sketches and stories from India's best-loved writer in English. For over four decades now, by way of innumerable short stories, essays, poems and novels, Ruskin Bond has championed simplicity and quietude in life and in art. This collection of essays and episodes from his journals is, in his own words, "a celebration of my survival as a freelance'. The author's early forays into the literary magazines of the 1950s and '60s are described in the first part of the book, along with some examples of his work at the time. The sections that follow contain extracts from an unpublished travel journal he kept during the '60s, episodes from the highways on which he was a frequent traveller, and vignettes of life in Mussoorie, past and present. With understated humour and compassion, Ruskin Bond records the charming eccentricities of friends and acquaintances (a former princess cheerfully obsessed with death and disaster); the silent miracles of nature ("New moon in a purple sky'); life's little joys (the smell of onions frying) and its fleeting regrets. Nostalgic and heart-warming, full of wisdom and charm, The Lamp is Lit provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of "our very own resident Wordsworth in prose'.

    awesome

    This book is a treat for all true Ruskin Bond fans.Simply awesome. Also flipkart is giving 15% discount.
    extracts:

    If mice could roar
    And elephants soar
    And trees grow up in the sky;
    If tigers could dine
    On biscuits and wine,
    And the fattest of men could fly!
    If pebbles could sing
    and bells never ring
    And teachers were lost in the post;
    If a tortoise could run,
    And losses be won,
    And bullies be buttered on toast;
    If a song brought a shower,
    And a gun grew a flower,
    This world would be nicer ...

    Beautiful and moving....

    It is a beautiful book and a really enjoyable read. I would urge people to read this and other titles by Ruskin Bond just to revisit the simpler pleasures in life. The author will inspire the reader to look at his life with a different perspective, to discover that having or wanting lots of money will never make you happy, and that it is actually doing what you love the most and the people in your life that you love and care about that give true happiness and contentment. It is written in sim...

    A memoir brimming with nostalgia

    Written a year after his first autobiographical book, Ruskin Bond opens up about his early endeavors into the literary arena in the 1950's and 60’s after he returned to India.

    With his crisp and clear writing style and innate wit, he frankly recollects his early freelancing years. This is followed by a brief travelogue of the places he visited and loved- Rishikesh, Mathura and Jaipur. After sharing some amusing incidents of his time spent in Mussoorie, he ends with a few pages from his journ...
