Old Paharis can hear and relish this tale

Both my eyes have been operated for cataract and I longed to hear the legendary stories penned by Mr Ruskin Bond who is 20 years older to me and a writer I identify with being a fellow Pahari.
This is the first audiobook I heard and it was a heartwarming experience.
I could well understand the plight and pluck of Bishnu and the large heartedness of Pritham Singh, the majesty of the Himalayan landscape and its plunder because of human need and greed.
A great short story very effectively narrated.
