I recently got a chance to lay my hands upon the book 'Time stops at Shamli' written by Ruskin Bond. Well, Ruskin Bond, the great writer, needs no introduction. He has written innumerable short stories and novellas for children as well as adults. All his stories are mostly based in the small towns of India, the hills and the mountains, the villages and the forests. His deep love for India is reflected in his stories. For me, India is more than a geographical entity; but if I have to transpose this rather nebulous concept into something more concrete, then I would say that India is really to be found in its small towns.

Халохот поднимался вверх с пистолетом в руке, прижимаясь вплотную к стене на тот случай, если Беккер попытается напасть на него сверху. Железные подсвечники, установленные на каждой площадке, стали бы хорошим оружием, если бы Беккер решил ими воспользоваться. Но если держать дистанцию, можно заметить его вовремя. У пистолета куда большая дальность действия, чем у полутораметрового подсвечника. Халохот двигался быстро, но осторожно.

 Не может быть! - сказала она по-испански. У Беккера застрял комок в горле. Росио была куда смелее своего клиента. - Не может быть? - повторил он, сохраняя ледяной тон.  - Может, пройдем, чтобы я смог вам это доказать.

Там она и стала тем, кого японцы именуют хибакуся - человеком, подвергшимся облучению.
