Think of India’s bestselling author for children and the name Ruskin Bond pops up in your mind before you can blink. The octogenarian Ruskin Bond’s books have never lost their space in the bestseller lists. They are prescribed in school curriculum. Kids love them and so do their parents. He has also written books for grown ups, two of which have been turned into critically acclaimed films – Junoon (based on A Flight of Pigeons) and 7 Khoon Maaf based on Susanna’s Seven Husbands apart from the children’s film The Blue Umbrella.
Ruskin Bond has recently come out with Coming Round the Mountain, another look at his past, on the heels of its two predecessors Looking for the Rainbow and Till the Clouds Roll By.
