I was not a regular at Anil’s Cafe
when I was in school.
but I had to visit
when I was there last month.
So, I walked up towards chaar dukan
and only realised this time around
that the reason this place
is called chaar dukan
is because there are only four dukans
and anil’s is the last one there 🙂
all those weekend outings
during boarding school life
never brought me here.
because it was off bounds
(though only 100 yards further)
and i was that goody two shoes
who broke no rules 😉
but i finally made it.
this is the famed ruskin bond hangout.
on certain saturdays when he is in mussoorie
he actually comes here and chills with his fans
he came to our school once
I vaguely remember
but i realised I would not read his books twice
once is good enough…
but this place is a must visit
if you want ruskin bond collection
all his books are housed neatly
i however collected
a ruskin bond selection instead.
