This personal diary records the many small moments that constitute a life of harmony - with the self, the natural world, and friends, family and passersby. In these hours, we watch a wild plum blossom and the moon come up between two deodar trees; we hear a redstart whistle and the rain drum on a tin roof; we recognize the aftermath of loss and the consolation of old companions. A Book of Simple Living is a gift of beauty and wisdom from India's most loved and most understated writer.

Amazing experience. The book is written in such a simplistic and descriptive manner that every word comes in front of your eyes.. and it opens up the world showing the minute pleasures in the world... Must read for those rainy days when you just want to sit and watch it rain...

Simplistically written fantastic book which touches on the key things we are missing in today's fast paced life.
