Abstract:

 

Ruskin Bond is one of the dominant short story writers in contemporary Indian English literature. The India government has recognized his creative genius. He was awarded the prestigious Padma Shri award (1999),and Padma Bhusan award (2014)  for his contribution to Indian English literature. Bond is an ardent admirer of life though it is not free from death, separation and ordeals. He believes that as winter and spring are the different phases of nature, so are the woes and delights of life. The philosophy of life as reflected in his work is “to strive, to seek, to find and not to yield”. His keen observation encompasses the delicate world of the children, the multifarious colours of  Indian life, the elevating and soothing natural world, and love in the existence of every living organism. His bewitching simplicity of narration, spontaneous and engaging progression of plot, faithful portrayal of the daily drama of human life and an unparalleled analysis of the working of human mind have placed him as one of the outstanding short story writers in english. The present paper focuses on Ruskin Bond’s major thematic concerns in his short stories.In this paper, Bond’s humanism  has also been  analysised  in the backdrop of his thematic pattern.

 

Keywords:  Nature, Love, Children, Indianness, Humanism.
