    Moments of inspiration come to all of us These are times when our imagination takes flight and there s an urge to pen down a few lines It happens to me during the monsoons seeing how lovely everything starts looking The rains are infinitely romantic and there s a regenerating beauty to the season that is quite hard to describe.It is with this sense of endless wonder and child like joy that Ruskin Bond writes from his small room about all things that make an impression on him And with his a Moments of inspiration come to all of us These are times when our imagination takes flight and there s an urge to pen down a few lines It happens to me during the monsoons seeing how lovely everything starts looking The rains are infinitely romantic and there s a regenerating beauty to the season that is quite hard to describe.It is with this sense of endless wonder and child like joy that Ruskin Bond writes from his small room about all things that make an impression on him And with his ardor for nature, even an ant s movement doesn t escape his sensitive eye.The book most of it are entries from his diary is an ode to all things close and dear to him, wherein Ruskin Bond describes the mountain steam lined by white blossoms with as much tenderness as the potted geranium plant in his house His joy at seeing seedlings break out from mother earth in the monsoons is only equaled by the wonder he feels watching the variety of insects emerging after a hot summer.Most of the descriptions are about nature but Ruskin Bond s affection extends to many other things, of which he makes some poignant notes My favourite chapters if they can be called that, because most of them are nothan 2 pages all relate to the author s description of his personal life his childhood, some tender moments with his father, his struggle to become a writer Another touching episode relates to his type writer, which he couldn t afford entirely and his clerk housekeeper buys it for him.Then there are some reflections of books, the way only a bibliophile would do it talking about how books and their curative properties, the charm of pocket books and what it means to be a bibliophilethe rest can be read on my book blog,

    I bought this book in Kolkata at the insistence of a friend These wonderful little essays proved to be great comfort over the past week of recovery from travel and food poisoning Very gentle and accessible, these pieces are filled with wit and wisdom I can see why Ruskin Bond is such a beloved writer in India The only problem I have with this book is the careless proofing copyediting At times errors were so frequent that it threatened to ruin the reading experience.
