'Mist fills the Himalayan valleys, and monsoon rain sweeps around the hills. occasionally, in the course of the day, a fowl visits me-a deep crimson whistling thrush. She perches at the window sill, and appears out with me on the rain.'

This own diary documents the numerous small moments that represent a lifetime of harmony-with the self, the wildlife, and acquaintances, relatives and passersby. In those pages, we watch a wild plum blossom and the moon arise among deodar timber; we listen a redstart whistle and the rain drum on a tin roof; we realize the aftermath of loss and the comfort of previous companions.

'A e-book of easy residing' is a present of good looks and knowledge from India's so much enjoyed, and so much understated, writer.
