The Very Best of Ruskin Bond The Writer on the Hill (Selected Fiction and Non - Fiction)
Description
About the Book

One of India’s finest and most prolific writers, RUSKIN BOND has been putting pen to paper for well over six decades. Since The Room on the Roof-his award-winning debut novel which introduced readers to the unforgettable Rusty, the orphan from Dehradun-Bond has created characters both charming and eccentric, which have endured in popular imagination. And, in what is perhaps his most towering achievement, Bond has brought to pulsing life the mountains, valleys and rivers of Garhwal, as well as the quiet magic of small, tucked-away places, in book after book.

The Writer on the Hill is a comprehensive selection of Bond’s fiction and non-fiction, both popular and little-known. In ‘Masterji’, a young man meets his old Hindi teacher on a train platform, in handcuffs. In the excerpt from, The Room on the Roof. Rusty stands up to his bullying guardian. ‘Man and Leopard’ describes, in mesmerizing prose, a heart-breaking encounter between man and the wild. And, in ‘Once upon a Mountain Time’, Bond creates a charming portrait of his little patch of earth in Mussoorie.

A tribute to one of the most popular and loved writers of India, The Writer on the Hill is also a celebration of the quiet, unhurried life, lived at one’s own pace. This volume will delight Bond’s fans everywhere.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
