Ruskin Bond – A Love of Long Ago



“She was always on the move-flitting about on the verandah, running errands of no consequence, dancing on the steps, singing on the rooftop as she hung out the family washing. Only once was she still. That was when we met on the steps in the dark, and I stole a kiss, a sweet phantom kiss. She was very still then, very close, a butterfly drawing out nectar, and then she broke away from me and ran away laughing.

There are many stages of love-the first encounter, stolen glances, secret kisses, longing, and sometimes, heartbreak. Featuring classics like “Time Stops at Shamli, ‘Who Kissed Me in the Dark?’ and “The Girl on the Train, the heartwarming collection of stories in A Love of Long Ago captures the range of feelings that are indubitably part of the infinite spectrum of love.
