Himayan Tales (The Rupa Book of Ruskin Bond's )
Description
About the Book

The Rupa Book of Ruskin Bond’s Himalayan Tales is a collection of short stories, essays and poems around the theme of hills. Bond's unique style has, over the decades, become a tribute to life in the hills. With his keen spirit of observation as he sets his eyes upon people, places, animals and nature, Ruskin Bond deftly captures the mystery and joy of inhabiting a rich natural environment. The haikus and poems interspersed with the stories make for delightful reading. With this compelling blend of fiction and non-fiction, Ruskin Bond treats us to another endearing Rupa selection.

Since then he has written several novellas (including Vagrants in the Valley, A Flight of Pigeons and Delhi is not Far), essays, poems and children’s books. He has also written over five hundred short stories and articles, which have appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
