Ruskin Bond needs no introduction. His works are famous for their simplicity as well as the detailing they carry, making the author a pleasant paradox. When he describes Nature, it resonates in your imagination. For example, when he describe the water gushing through, I could actually hear it. Maybe it was because I was imagining it that I also thought of the sound. Nevertheless, that is the power that he holds.
Ruskin Bond is pure genius in his simplicity. His stories are simple, yet carry a message that resonates with every reader in some form or the other. While The Cherry Tree shows the positives that comes from patiently nurturing trees (or people close to you, if you’re thinking metaphorically), The Blue Umbrella shows the stark delineation between adult and children’s thinking.
