Passing By,

Enough for me that you are beautiful:
Beauty possessed diminishes.
Better a dream of love
Than love’s dream broken;
Better a look exchanged
Than love’s word spoken.
Enough for me that you walk past,
A firefly flashing in the dark.

-Ruskin Bond

    Dear Sir,

    My name is Rachita. I live in the city of Ajmer, Rajasthan. I love your work very much. Whenever my little brother gets some books issued from his school library I always ask him to get some of your short-story books. I love Reading, Infact I too write simple poems. Many years ago I watched a serial on the “DD-1” National Channel that broadcast some of your short stories. That’s how I came to knew about you. When I found out that “Blue Umbrella”(The movie) is based on your story, I found and read about it. It was a nice one. I will be obliged if you kindly send me your postal address so that I could write back to you in my own writing.

    My address is :

    1287/32, Behind Parsi Temple,
    Alwar Gate,

    My E-mail address is:

    Thanks and Regards,
