Ruskin Bond, an author known for the simplicity of his writing style and profound observations turns 82 today. He was born on 19 May 1934. Bond has written over 300 short stories and 30 novels for children. He was awarded the Padma Shri in 1999 and Padma Bhushan in 2014.

He wrote his first novel The Room on the Roof at the age of 17. It was a semi-autobiographical account. Bond resides near Mussoorie and often visits a book store located on the Mall Road. The Priyanka Chopra starrer 7 Khoon Maaf was based on a short story by Ruskin Bond called Susanna’s Seven Husbands. We wish a happy birthday to this beloved author.
