Another School Year Begins With Mr Bond

‘The Room of Many Colours’ is another Ruskin Bond collection of short stories. The Deccan Herald School Edition is serialising it this term. Thankfully, most of the stories are set up in the hills. So for a few hours every other day as I illustrate a story, I get to pretend I’m not in traffic-congested, buried-under-garbage Bengaluru, but breathing in the clean mountain air on some lower Himalayan slopes, in a time capsule frozen in the 1950s maybe.

Gentle, haunting stories, with the author’s crazy family members popping in for a guest appearance now and then.
