Product description


Night Train at Deoli is a collection of 30 short stories of Ruskin Bond. The stories are simple and thought provoking and pertain to the time the author spent as a child and teenager in the foothills of Himalayas i.e Dehra and Mussorrie. Most of the stories run into 2 or 3 pages. There are a couple of them which were part of my English syllabus while I was studying in school. As Bond himself mentions in the preface of the book, his stories are not about espionage, mystery, suspense or murder. Rather these are simple stories of simple folk in the pure and unspoilt land of the hills, forests, the bazaars and its flora and fauna. Since I belong to the hills probabaly I can relate more to its little towns, villages and its folk. However this is precisely the message Bond tries to convey. i.e he will make you connect and feel the anguish, sorrow, pain and joy of mundane events which many of us do not even register in our minds. Admist the hustle and bustle of city life and its rat race, Ruskin Bond's stories are the perfect dose to make you think and ponder about the beauty hidden in the simplest of events. --DHIRAJ SHARMA Aug 13, 2012

A Sleepy Indian Railway Station, Natives waiting for the Night Train to Deoli, so, how's this a story? Just, open it & read on, the author fills it with the Magic of Life, in the poorest of the poor, the most mundane of circumstances............throbbing with the suspense, trials & tribulations, ofyet another day spent, in this country of a kind..!! That's Ruskin Bond for you!!!!!!!!!!!!! --Ritesh Shrivastav Nov 16, 2011

This was the first Ruskin Bond book that I bought and after that I've started collecting his books. This book has short simple stories...specially, stories of longing...stories which melt your heart. The book will be liked by those who love the simple things in life, those who love nature. I'm now a fan of Ruskin Bond --Vineet Gedam Mar 29, 2013
