Summary

In this delightful collection, Ruskin Bond introduces us to the Dehradun he knows intimately and loves unreservedly - the town in which he had spent many years of his childhood and youth. A town which, when he knew it, was one of pony-drawn tongas and rickshaws; a town fond of gossip but tolerant of human foibles; a town of lush lichi trees; charming winter gardens and cool streams; a small town; a sleepy town; a town called "Dehra".

With classic stories and poems like "Masterji"; "Growing Up with Trees"and "A Song for Lost Friends" and previously unpublished treasures like "Silver Screen"; "Dilaram Bazaar" and "Lily of the Valley"; this anthology is replete with journal entries; extracts from the author’s memoirs; and of course, poetry, nonfiction, and stories set in or inspired by Dehra.

Evocative, wistful, and witty as only Ruskin Bond can be, A Town Called Dehra is a celebration of a dearly loved town as well as an elegy for a way of life gone extinct.
