Giving back something which they love the most is difficult even for adults. Then how can a little girl do that? But there’s one pretty little girl from a village in Garhwal did it. Yes, there’s a little girl named Binya in the village. One day Binya gets a beautiful blue umbrella in exchange for her lucky leopard’s claw pendant. She carries it wherever she goes and very soon the whole village goes jealous of Binya and her pretty blue umbrella.
Something interesting happens hereafter which makes Binya to give up her prized possession. Simplicity is always the best style, and Ruskin Bond proves it again with this wonderful story. “The Blue Umbrella” is an Indian novel by children’s favorite author Ruskin Bond.
