Ruskin, Our Enduring Bond

 
Ganesh Saili (Author)
Synopsis Ruskin, Our Enduring Bond is the story of a charmed childhood spent in 'old towering palaces! Full of mystery and romance.' At the age of ten, Ruskin Bond lost his father, but by then Ruskin's father had already passed on to his little son, his love for old friends, old times, old manners, old books and old music. Ruskin was only seventeen when he first started writing to be published in 1951. Even as his first novel The Room on the Roof was being published in England, he returned 'home' to India in 1955. After a few years of wandering in the plains, he scampered up the foothills North of Dehra, and has spent the last forty years in Landour and Mussoorie, living close to nature, amongst good friends and those he loves. And this is where Ruskin--the icon of the mountains and its unsung tales--has written many of his finest stories, essays, poems, novels, and verse.

About the author

Ganesh Saili

Ganesh has been known to cook everything from Banana Fritters to Mutton Chops.  Over a period of 30 years, he has been collecting Mussoorie and Landour memorabilia - old photographs, recipes, menu cards, coasters, place mats, bar stools and bar flies!  Much of this collection went into the making of Mussoorie & Landour - Days of Wine and Roses, which is today a collector's item.  Ganesh has also done some picture books which Ruskin uses on stormy nights to keep his door from blowing open.  When it isn't windy, he appreciates the pictures!  In revenge, Ganesh makes a castle with Ruskin's 80-odd published titles and waits for the wind to knock it down!  Presently, he is working on an out-of-focus pictorial biography of his author friend.
