Ruskin Bond ... awaiting his next project.
HE loves the idea of people writing for him but then that is a typical Ruskin Bond sentiment. Speaking on the release of Days of Innocence: Stories for Ruskin Bond, an anthology of short stories on growing up and the angst that it may or may not contain by a series of writers from Namita Gokhale to Bulbul Sharma, has certainly done him proud. But he is more excited about the impending book his memories Extracts from Writers Diary, a longer version, that is to be published by Penguin later in the year. His own favourite book though remains one that he wrote on growing up in Dehradun and in typical fashion he quips that he worked the hardest on writing The Room on the Roof. "I'm sure I don't work that hard anymore," he chuckles. Next on hand is his project to write his Alma Mater's history.
