Liked this book a lot firstly because it was Ruskin Bond . Secondly the places described in the book are very familiar. The book centers around the life of a lonely boy for whom events change so fast . Love , tragedy , humor , friendship all in the same book. The feel of Dehradun , haridwar and rishikesh , the valley , river , rain , etc was great. Overall a book which is fun to read and can be read in one go.
