Publisher's Summary

Ruskin Bond emerges again, with a delightful set of sketches set in and on the way to his beloved Mussoorie. With an endearing affection and nostalgia for his home of over 40 years, Mr Bond describes his journeys to and from Mussoorie over the years, and then delves into the daily scandals surrounding his life and friends in the (not so) sleepy hill town. The pieces in this collection are characterised by an incorrigible sense of humour and an eye for ordinary - and most often unnoticed - details that are so essential to the geographic, social and cultural fabric of a place. Roads to Mussoorie is a memorable evocation of a writer's surroundings and the role they have played in his work and life.

Simple and refreshing stories

It was a nice and a quick read. The narrator tone was sweet to ear but his pronunciation to some of Indian words mentioned in the book was not up to the mark
