    I always love reading Ruskin Bond for the simplicity his writing offer Being someone from north India, I can relate to the characters and places he writes about It s impossible not to feel nostalgically happy after reading him.

    Happiness is an elusive state of mind, not to be gained by clumsy pursuit It is given to those who do not sue for it to be unconcerned about a desired good is probably the only way to possess it.This is yet another autobiography written in 1998.Have read quite a few of his books including THE autobiography Lone Fox Dancing 2017 and I suspect this

    Delightful read.Reading Mr Bond is therapeutic because you come across lines like following and pause for a moment to appreciate and reflect upon itBut whenever or however he died, it wouldn t be death He was too old to die He could only sleep.He could only fall gently, like an old brown leaf

    Ruskin bond is a always a pleasure to read This books talks about all the things he loves, literature, nature , traveling And most of all his love for India This book is an easy read and I found the journal entries and Ruskin s childhood the most interesting At some points though the book was a little too descriptive about the Indian cities But still a great read.
