Here Is Everything You Need To Know About Ruskin Bond's Dehra Trial

You might not have seen Dehradun like this before.

"Formally, it’s known as Dehradun, but in the 1940s and 1950s, when we were young, everyone called it Dehra. That’s where I spent much of my childhood, boyhood and early manhood, and it was the Dehra I wrote about in many of my books and stories," writes Ruskin Bond in Introduction of his book - A Town called Dehra.

Ruskin’s association with Dehradun can be divided into four periods - He spent his early childhood here in his maternal grandmother’s house, the period when he used to come back from his school in Shimla and stay with his mother and stepfather each time in a different house in Dehradun (1944-1951), then again when he returned from London (1955-58) and finally the brief period he stayed here (1961-62) before shifting permanently to Mussoorie and then Landour in 1963.
