Books….. Yes, I love them, and I consider them as my best pal in the lonely hours of the day. Since early childhood, I have remained keen on reading books. All thanks to my parents who took the pain to develop this good habit in me. I wish that the children of this generation must have this habit & so I decided to pick the names of the nine authors whose books are worth reading.
Ruskin Bond: There will be hardly anyone who never read a single book by Ruskin Bond in childhood days. “Rusty”. “Rusty Runs Away”; “Rusty and the Magic Mountain”; “Rusty goes to London” are some of the great creations of Ruskin Bond for children. There are more than 50 books penned by Ruskin Bond and each one of them is a hit. My personal favorite is theBlue Umbrella.
R.KNarayan: The creator of the fictional town named Malgudi in South India through his stories of Malgudi Days. He received massive appreciation and still receiving the for his excellent masterpiece “ Malgudi Days”, a collection of fictional short stories.
