    Some things will never change For it isn’t time that’s passing by my friend; it is you and I This was a simple and beautiful collection of short stories set in a wide variety of places and revolving around the lives of a variety of different people The descriptions of the places where the stories were set both the cities and villages were lucid and enchanting The characters and their stories felt uniue and real and made me emotional Some stories were humorous; some were sad and nostalgic while some others invoked happiness Some of my favorite stories were The Room of Many Colours; Time Stops at Shamli Absolutely loved this one; for some reason I always remember the title of the story as Train Stops at Shamli; The Fight; The Tunnel; Masterji; He Said It with Arsenic; A Crow for All Seasons; A Tiger in the House; Tiger Tiger Burning Bright Totally recommend it

    I have been guilty of judging Ruskin Bond by his short stories which did not appeal to me very much However Time Stops at Shamli his novella completely changed my outlook upon him The writing style the characters everything has a beautiful aura about it and a reader must read such beautiful stories

    35One of the best assorted stories by Bond The mixed collection includes romance paranormal horror nostalgia mystery and off course natureA couple of stories Time Stops at Shamli He Said it with Arsenic were mind blowing goodMost of these stories are autobiographical as mentioned in the IntroRecommended for a an easy breezy read

    There is a tinge of nostalgia in these tales Ruskin Bond is a writer of simple beautiful stories shimmering with loss nostalgia lived experience ghosts of the past altered memories and the settings he finds for his tales mountainous landscapes of Northern India add to the whole experience I feel that if you take the atmosphere away there may not be much left to the stories coz the narrative takes it cue from the backdrop The unsaid dialogues linger somewhere in the fog filled hilly roads or the stretch of the jungle around a lonely station where jackals howl at night In the end these are tales that often than not have a satisfying close I loved how 'Time stops at Shamli' begins At one point I felt that everyone in the lodge except the narrator were ghosts Off course the sudden appearance of his lost lover was too much to digest but I was happy to suspend my disbelief Though the writer doesn't mention anywhere it was not difficult for me to feel that the characters could have been trapped in a ghostly time loop I was imagining a film made by Tim Burton about a man who stumbles upon a deserted village and decides to take a look and there is no reason why a film like that would not haunt its audience

    Anyone who has lived in Dehradun India and hasn't read Ruskin Bond is missing out on so much that the beautiful Garhwal and Doon Valley have to offer I got to know my valley intimately the tigers and cheetahs the majestic eucalyptus and banyan trees the rivers and streams and the beautiful houses with sprawling orchards I cherished the descriptions of small cities and villages that sometimes weren't even listed on the map simply because I couldn't go on an exploratory journey myself The people in Bond's stories are so real maybe because most of his stories are based on fact These people are so ordinary really if you lived in the Doon valley in the 90s I'm sure you knew some of them These people live and die in the villages they were born in unless they ran away from home play cricket and break windows eat out in the dhabas believe in ghosts sometimes take pleasure in someone else's misfortune are victims of unreuited love lose a job judge others harshly struggle to make ends meet enjoy trysts in the soft rains and go to the movies to escape it all They dream big and are often content not to make their dreams a reality They always welcome a guest with open arms even if they abandon him later They are capable of acts of unexpected cruelty and at the same time unparalleled generosity Simply put they are regular people who do not pretend to be even a little bit than what they areOf all the stories in this collection Time Stops at Shamli makes me sentimental and all gooey inside There's nothing sappy about this story it's just so real there's that word again Oh well go read Bond's stories especially if you've been to Dehra andor the surrounding areas And if you're walking down the uiet part of the Mall Road in Mussoorie you might meet Ruskin Bond a pukka sahib clad in his heavy coat checked hat and muffler reading and climbing the steep slopes at the same time

    A book very light hearted Enjoyable if you do not seek heavy intellectual enrichment but does open your mind to the importance of insignificant things in life Meant for children from ages 12 15in my opinion

    One Ruskin Bond collection with most of the stories making me falling in love with them A few were average and one or two plain boring Time Stops at Shamli the title story is the jewel in the crown Next best comes Most Beautiful and He said it with Arsenic Now an ardent admirer of Bond Our Trees grow in Dehra is beckoning me now but after a break so that I can savour the stories

    With simple language and short prose Bond has managed to pack in everything about being human in this little collection Each story is rich with his insight into human emotions and the natural world His understanding of the wild is fluid and impeccable The stories reflect the many hours that Bond would have spent with nature observing inuiring and appreciating
