A SONG OF INDIA: THE YEAR I WENT AWAY

299.00

Eastward the sun and Westward the moon, if you think of me, I’ll come back soon!

Sixteen-year-old Ruskin, after having finally finished his school, is living with his stepfather and mother at the Old Station Canteen in Dehradun. Struggling to begin his writing journey, he tries to make a passage to England to chase his true calling. But as he prepares for his long voyage, the prospect of saying goodbye to the warm, sunny shores of India looms large.

Brought straight from his past, Ruskin Bond recalls the longing for familiarity, the joys of publishing his stories, receiving his first money order and finding new friends.

Following the trail of Looking for the Rainbow, Till the Clouds Roll By and Coming Round the Mountain, A Song of India is another year from the life of a fiery teenager as he embarks on a journey to an unfamiliar land.
