Ruskin Bond, author of many widely sought after books, was at the Landmark store in Forum Mall, Bangalore, on June 6, 2012, to release his new book of poems “Hip Hop Nature Boy and Other Poems” published by Penguin Books India. The event “Meet Ruskin Bond at Landmark” was organized by both Penguin Books and Landmark stores to celebrate their 25th anniversaries this year.

With around 200 spectators, the event was grand and aesthetical. After the inauguration ceremony, the author cut a cake along with his favourite audience – children, recited a poem from the new book, answered few questions of his fans and signed autographs.

The book “Hip Hop Nature Boy and Other Poems” is a collection of few of his favourite poems, some old poems and the ones written in the recent past. Regarding the inspiration behind the book, the author said it came from observing children perform hip hop in Odisha, a state of India. He also said about his love for children and that he will always try to understand their qualities.

 

Ruskin Bond is an Indian author of British descent born in Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh in 1934. His first novel “The Room on the Roof”, written when he was seventeen, received the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial prize in 1957. He received the Sahitya Academy award in 1993 and the Padma Shri in 1999. Presently he is staying in Landour, Mussoorie, with his extended family.
