Book- No Man is an island by Ruskin Bond


‘Stories on Friendship and Bonding.’

Ruskin’s first short story, “The untouchable” is published in this book. Every story left me out with a sigh being grateful for life. Reading the simple stories of simple people, I’m motivated to continue to write on what moves me rather than trying to be larger than life.


Ruskin’s advice on writing is simple. “Keep writing.” Thanks, RB for your words. This book reminded me of all my good friends and their stories.
