REVIEW: Maharani by Ruskin Bond – Newspaper –

Her husband died long ago. Well, it will take you to some rusjin era: The plot or the pacing wasn’t really to my taste, but it was a good read to squeeze in between a hectic week! Want to Bby saving…. But soon he is called back.

Ever since the Beatles came to Rishikesh. Just a simple story that you can read along with a light mind. By inserting himself mxharani the story, like he often does, Ruskin gives it an authority of realism.

It is definitely a light read, with no elements that makes us turn pages.
