Product description

Review

This is the kind of book where one expects to find a dried flower bookmarking the pages still carrying a trace of fragrance, it is like curling up on a window seat with an old friend the comfort is almost instant.
-Outlook

A lyrical, spare new work-part writer's workshop, part meditation. Bond is candid as ever, in speaking of his reconciliation with a certain kind of loneliness, his willed choice of a certain kind of monkish existence greatest of all is his union with the natural world around him, his lifelong love for his mountain home. Anyone as yet unacquainted with Bond's enduring grace could well start here.
-Scroll.in

It's hard to say what's more charming, Ruskin Bond's simple prose or the surroundings he describes. But it is obvious that one feeds on the other: charming surroundings lend themselves to charming prose [A Book of Simple Living] is barely 150-pages long, like a bowl of clear soup that you finish in no time, but by the time you are done with it, you feel satiated as if you've had a five-course meal.
-The Hindu

We suggest you pick it up because this 150-pager is a real gem: Simplicity at its best. The small lessons on nature, people, companionship, contentment, happiness, fortitude, perseverance, generosity and so on that the author doles out to the reader through his jottings are real treasures. Ruskin lets you have the breath-taking Himalayan experience without leaving home.
-Sakal Times

A simple recipe for happiness...Any reader who goes through this book can only agree that Ruskin Bond has indeed discovered the recipe for a happy life. Bond's keen eye for detail is visible throughout the book.
-Deccan Herald

About the Author

Ruskin Bond was born in Kasauli in 1934. He grew up in Jamnagar, Dehradun and Shimla, worked briefly in Jersey, London and Delhi, and moved to Mussoorie in the early 1960s to write full time. One of India’s best loved and most popular authors, Ruskin Bond has written over a hundred books of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, including the best-selling classics Room on the Roof (winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize), A Flight of Pigeons, The Blue Umbrella, Time Stops at Shamli, Night Train at Deoli, Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra (winner of the Sahitya Akademi Award) and Rain in the Mountains. He was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India in 1999 and the Padma Bhushan in 2014.
