The new title in the best-selling ‘Little Book’ series by India’s most beloved writer, Ruskin Bond.
Where does beauty live? Where should we travel to find it?
Is a dawn without birdsong still beautiful?
What might we see through the branches of a cherry tree at night?
Can we crave the rose if we fear its thorns?
What does the heart have to do with beauty?
Few writers anywhere have celebrated the beauty of the world, of all creatures great and small, as magically as Ruskin Bond has done. This little anthology brings together his own ideas and images of beauty and those of writers and thinkers he has read and liked. This pocketbook is a thing of quiet beauty.
Ruskin Bond is the author of numerous novellas, short-story collections and non-fiction books, many of them classics. Among them are The Room on the Roof, A Flight of Pigeons, The Night Train at Deoli, Time Stops at Shamli, Landour Days, Rain in the Mountains, A Book of Simple Living and Friends in Wild Places. He received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1993, the Padma Shri in 1999 and the Padma Bhushan in 2014. He lives in Landour, Mussoorie, with his extended family.
