Ruskin Bond is a renowned Indian author of British descent, known for his works of fiction and non-fiction in English. Born on May 19, 1934, in Kasauli, Punjab (now in Himachal Pradesh), Bond spent his childhood in different parts of India due to his father’s job in the Royal Air Force.
His writing often explores themes of love, loss, nature, and the complexities of human relationships. His love for nature is evident in many of his works, where he describes the beauty of the mountains, forests, and rivers of India.
He has received numerous accolades for his work, including the Sahitya Akademi Award, the Padma Shri, and the Padma Bhushan.
