The Ruskin Bond Selections

Ruskin Bond

Speaking Tiger Publishing Private Ltd is pleased to present to you The Ruskin Bond Selections, a series of titles, carefully chosen and thoughtfully recommended by Ruskin Bond, which represent a lifetime of reading and contemplation. The Selections will include memoirs, accounts of travel and adventure, writings on nature, stories from the hills and the mountains, and the occasional long-lost novel, newly found. Marked by felicity of thought and that rare quality which makes writing timeless, each of the richly entertaining titles in this series will be a reader’s delight.

In Ruskin Bond’s own words: ‘After a lifetime of reading, I find it very gratifying to have the opportunity to revive certain titles which have meant something to me over the years. Old favourites often disappear. Good writers are sometimes neglected or unfairly forgotten. Presenting their work to discriminating new readers is a pleasure and a privilege.’

From 1684 till the present, the Indian diaspora in South Africa has had a long history. But in the country of their origin, they remain synonymous with three points of identity: indenture, apartheid and Mahatma Gandhi. Through What Gandhi Didn’t See: Being Indian in South Africa, Zainab Priya Dala deftly lifts the veil on some of the many other facets of South African Indians, starting with the question: How relevant is Gandhi to them today?’ Indian Writers Forum carries an excerpt from What Gandhi Didn’t See: Being Indian in South Africa by Zainab Priya Dala.

When the conflict was at its peak, Visier Meyasetsu Sanyu was living with his family of nine in the village of Khonoma. In this extract from his latest book, A Naga Odyssey: My Long Way Home, he narrates how in 1956, when he was five years old, his family fled their village out of fear of the Indian Army and sought refuge in the surrounding jungles, where they would remain in hiding for over two years.’ The Caravan Magazine carries an excerpt from A Naga Odyssey: My Long Way Home by Visier Meyasetsu Sanyü.

Reviews

‘Obesity is a low energy state. This description of obesity as an invisible illness marks the starting point of FAT: The Body, Food And Obesity, which undertakes a scientific exploration of our relationship with food. Authored by paediatric surgeons Dr Ishrat Syed and Dr Kalpana Swaminathan, FAT simplifies how the body feels about what we eat, rather than how our body looks, which is often the starting point of many appearance-driven health and beauty movements today.’ Book review of FAT: The Body, Food And Obesity by Dr Ishrat Syed and Dr Kalpana Swaminathan.

‘In a society where dietary preferences are being scrutinised by self-styled guardians and protectors of tradition, Haksar’s book makes for illuminating reading. An exploration of the deep-rooted connection between society and food, it is also an important reminder that not all is well with modern-day India.’ Book review of The Flavours of Nationalism: Recipes for Love, Hate and Friendship by Nandita Haksar.

‘Visier’s story is riveting, a saga of suffering, fortitude and perseverance interspersed with the Naga tales of struggle for freedom.’ Book review of A Naga Odyssey by Visier Meyasetsu Sanyü with Richard Broome .
