‘After class hours, or whenever I was free, I would slip into the
library and sit amongst these hundreds of books, reading them,
arranging them, cataloguing them or just being with them. Here I
made many lifelong friends.’

There are many who as they grow older, long to reach out to their friends
from school. And then there are others who are lucky enough to have
friends from school as a constant presence in their life. As we grow older
and embrace (or at least try to) the myriad aspects of adult life, we often
like to look back at our school days and reminisce about ‘simpler times’.
The bonds we make in school are some of the most cherished relationships
of our life, and are often what brings us solace on a hard day.

In My School on the Hill, Ruskin Bond brings us a collection of short stories
that remind us of the beauty, the excitement, the joy, the confusion and
the love we felt as schoolgoing children. From cricket matches in random
empty fields, to Boy Scouts adventures, to finding peace in the quiet school
library—this book has something for anyone looking for a moment of joy.


Ruskin Bond is known for his signature simplistic and witty writing style.
He is the author of several bestselling short stories, novellas, collections,
essays and children’s books; and has contributed a number of poems and
articles to various magazines and anthologies. At the age of twenty-three,
he won the prestigious John Llewellyn Rhys Prize for his first novel,
The Room on the Roof. He was also the recipient of the Padma Shri in
1999, Lifetime Achievement Award by the Delhi Government in 2012 and
the Padma Bhushan in 2014.

Born in 1934, Ruskin Bond grew up in Jamnagar, Shimla, New Delhi and
Dehradun. Apart from three years in the UK, he has spent all his life in
India, and now lives in Landour, Mussoorie, with his adopted family.
