By Ruskin Bond

'Mist fills the Himalayan valleys, and monsoon rain sweeps around the hills. occasionally, through the day, a poultry visits me-a deep red whistling thrush. She perches at the window sill, and appears out with me on the rain.'

This own diary files the numerous small moments that represent a lifetime of harmony-with the self, the flora and fauna, and neighbors, relatives and passersby. In those pages, we watch a wild plum blossom and the moon arise among deodar timber; we listen a redstart whistle and the rain drum on a tin roof; we realize the aftermath of loss and the comfort of previous companions.

'A publication of straightforward residing' is a present of good looks and knowledge from India's such a lot enjoyed, and such a lot understated, writer.
