Dreams—what are they made of? One spoon of hope, a scoop of passion and a drizzle of fantasy! It is the quickest escape route to our happy place—where the fountain of joy is never-ending. Ask just about anyone, and see them telling you their deepest desires with misty eyes and soft smiles… Just like Kamal, a lanky young boy, selling knick-knacks on the streets of Shahganj for a living. Resilient as a tree, he smiles through his misfortunes and has big dreams of going to bigger cities. Or Suraj, who’s bored of town life but fascinated by the forest, its inhabitants and the night mail, and comes back again and again to listen to the tales woven by the forest watchman. Or like the pair of quirky oddballs at a boarding school in Shimla who become best of friends, and dream of escaping the violence of the Partition through a secret tunnel… Bringing together the finest writings of Ruskin Bond, Boyhood Dreams and Other Tales will enchant those who dream with their eyes open!
