Landour Days: At Home with Ruskin Bond

And like that elusive butterfly settling on a still, welcoming hand, the 23rd of April arrived in Landour (Mussoorie) with the gentle softness of the breeze. A day—truly a long, still, wonderous moment—we would savour and carry back with us, like a balm for the harsh heat of Delhi. The end of a long walk, to and from Char Dukan, found the six of us, the designated Harper team, walking over to the quaint house sitting next to the vibrant Doma’s – to meet Mr Ruskin Bond.
