‘Nature doesn’t promise you anything - an after life, rewards for good behaviour, protection from enemies, wealth, happiness, progeny, all the things that humans desire and pray for. No, nature does not promise any of these things. Nature is a reward in itself.

And with that fitting introduction, Ruskin Bond takes you into his private paradise. He talks about his formative years and the influence that nature has had in shaping his thoughts and work. The book is interesting in bits and parts.

I always feel the same when amidst the nature. But could really never express in those exact words. The way Ruskin Bond describes is just fantabulous.

I live in a city, complete with polluting cars and concrete jungles. And to mess things up even my career doesn't allow me the much wanted escape to the hills and raw nature. This might be the exact same profile of most of the city youngsters. So what do u do when u still want to relive the purest forms of mother nature?.. read this book, because its the closest you can virtually get to the real tranquility. Recommended for all nature lovers....
