Humanism in the stories of Ruskin Bond
Keywords:humanism, empathy, sensitivity
An Englishman by birth, Bond is an Indian by choice. Ruskin Bond's perception of Indian reality is the most omnipresent note of every one of his compositions. Despite the fact that he is British by parentage, he is distinctly mindful of the nation that he has made his home. Most parts of Bond's fiction stamp him as an Indian author. He looks to depict the Indian reality which he himself has encountered and watched and which has turned into a part of his mind. His stories are effortlessly unmistakable as Indian because of their setting and focus. He looks at India as an insider and a participant, not as an observer or as an outsider. Bond enthusiastically embraces the cause of the persecuted, abused and the oppressed in a humanistic point of view. This paper attempts to portray his humanism as reflected in his stories.
