Time Stops at Shamli by Ruskin Bond

96.61 0.00

An enchanting collection of stories from the heartland of India

Ruskin Bond’s simple characters, living amidst the lush forests of the Himalayan foothills, are remarkable for their quiet heroism, courage and grace, and age-old values of honesty and fidelity. Residents of nondescript villages and towns, they lead lives that are touched by natural beauty as well as suffering—the loss of a loved parent, unfulfilled dreams, natural calamities, ghostly visitations, a respected teacher turned crooked, strangers who make a nuisance of themselves—which only reinforces their abiding faith in God, family and neighbor. Told in Bond’s distinctive style, these stories are a magnificent evocation of an India that may be fast disappearing.
