'Mist fills the Himalayan valleys, and monsoon
rain sweeps across the hills. Sometimes, during the day, a bird visits
me-a deep purple whistling thrush. She perches on the window sill, and
looks out with me at the rain.' This personal diary records the many
small moments that constitute a life of harmony-with the self, the
natural world, and friends, family and passersby. In these pages, we
watch a wild plum blossom and the moon come up between two deodar trees;
we hear a redstart whistle and the rain drum on a tin roof; we
recognize the aftermath of loss and the consolation of old companions.
"A Book of Simple Living" is a gift of beauty and wisdom from India's
most loved, and most understated, writer.
