The Little Book of Comfort is Ruskin Bond’s new refreshed version of his classic tales for his fans and readers across the globe. The book is published by Penguin Viking and was released on 28th January 2019.
About The Book:
”So I went out into the night, walked up the hill, discovered new things about the night and myself, and came home refreshed. For just as the night has the moon and the stars, so the darkness of the soul can be lit up by small fireflies – such as these calm and comforting thoughts that I have jotted down for you…” As said by Ruskin Bond.

If I were not a professional writer who was getting published I would still write.” In his essay, “On being an Indian”, he explains his Indian identity, “Race did not make me one. Religion did not make me one. But history did. And in the long run, it’s history that counts.” Ellen lived in Ludhiana with his step sister until she died in 2014.
