Rumer Godden, a gifted and a sensitive writer shares her times through the eBook Rungli-Rungliot.
This journal best describes the severe times she had encountered in a year spent in the enchanting corner of India. With tea gardens on the Himalayan slopes and beautiful mountains all around, the place was surely an experience not to miss. Despite residing in such a scenically engaging beauty, she stayed busy with work and upbringing of her two daughters. Dating back to the times of the second world war, the author shares her experience in her own words. All she had with her in those turbulent times were two children, a nanny, few pets and a lot of uncertainty.
