” Some compensations of summer:
Shade, and an iced drink.
A cool breeze.
Wearing as few or whatever clothes as one likes.
The exquisite shock from a bucket of cold water.
And the fruit, the fruit! “ – Ruskin Bond in A Little Book of Serenity 🌸
A homemade lime mint cooler with ice is an epitome of summer; together with a Ruskin Bond book, it’s bliss. This summer a holiday in the hill stations of Uttarakhand would have been fantastic, but it is unlikely with the once again rapidly rising numbers of COVID cases in Bangalore. We are most likely to be home bound. No complaints, Bangalore is pleasant even in summer. And the next best thing is an armchair travel to the hill station of Mussoorie in Uttarakhand with Ruskin Bond.
Till next post, take care !!
