9780140128420: Time Stops at Shamli and Other Stories

Residents of nondescript villages and towns, Ruskin Bond s characters are remarkable for their quiet heroism, courage and grace, and age-old values of honesty and fidelity. They lead lives that are touched by natural beauty as well as suffering the loss of a loved parent, unfulfilled dreams, natural calamities, ghostly visitations, a respected teacher turned crooked, strangers who make a nuisance of themselves which only reinforces their abiding faith in God, family and neighbour. Told in Bond s distinctive style, these stories are a magnificent evocation of an India that may be fast disappearing.

Book Description Penguin Books India, 2000. Softcover. Book Condition: New. An enchanting collection of stories from the little-known heartland of India Ruskin Bond?s characters?who live for the most part in the country?s small towns and villages?are not the sort who make the headlines but are, nonetheless, remarkable for their quiet heroism, their grace under pressure and the manner in which they continue to cleave to the old values: honesty, fidelity, a deep-rooted faith in God, family and their neighbour. They do have problems, of course?the sudden death of a loved parent, unfulfilled dreams, natural calamities, ghostly visitations, a respected teacher gone crooked, strangers who make a nuisance of themselves in a town marooned in time?but these are solved with a minimum of fuss and tremendous dignity. Taken together these stories are a magnificent evocation of real India by one of the country?s foremost writers. Printed Pages: 184. Bookseller Inventory # 20871
