Book- No Man is an island by Ruskin Bond


‘Stories on Friendship and Bonding.’

Ruskin Bond books are not easy reads for they choke me up with the little evanescence of life. Ruskin talks about his friends from his youth. His forte, ‘observe, recollect, reflect’ is a magic potion that makes his writing simple and gripping.

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.
