Ruskin Bond had forged an intimate relationship with the Himalayas and longed for it despite a stint in England. He is very quite by nature and stays away from the attention of the media in a small hill station in India and when asked once how he feel about living in India he said that it was stressful in practical sense as compared to England but at the end of the day India is home to him.
The book called The Room on the Roof was written when he was merely 17 and it included his experiences when he was staying in England and craved to come back to India. It also has a lot of information about how his parents were and his relationship with them. It was after the publication of this book that he finally decided to make writing his profession. It was in England that he was trying to find a publisher for his book and he struggled to get one. The book also has a clear description of his journey to taking up of writing seriously in his life.
