Dehra Dun has changed much since Rusty had come. Mou than twenty years, he have passed since he roomed its roads and bazaars with Somi, Ranbir and Suri. It was then a small garden town, quiet and homely.
Rusty find it hard to recognize the place today. The population has more than trebled and the noise and fervish haste of a large city has invaded its heart. Tongas and cycles have given way to buses, trucks, motor cycles and scooter-rickshaws. All signs of progress, one hopes. And there is no point in being too nostalgic. We must move on …
My friends have scattered in different directions and I am glad to say that all of them have done well for themselves. Only I remain in the valley or rather above it looking down from London.
My Dehra days are over, but I will never be far from Dehra. My heart and mind still belong to the friends of my youth.
My Opinion about the Book
It is very interesting and exciting book. It is full of adventures of Ruskin Bond when he was a child. It is very enjoyable book. So, I suggest all to read this book and enjoy the story.
