Born as a son of a British couple, Ruskin always had a passion for writing. His childhood was blemished by his parents’ separation and his father’s death. He wrote his first story at the age of 16, as he sought solace in reading and writing.
He then moved to the U.K. in search of better prospects but returned to India after some years. As a young man, he faced lots of challenges. He earned money by freelancing work and by writing short stories as well as poems. However, after facing so much of challenges he has achieved a special place in every Indian heart. We love his award-winning story ‘The Blue Umbrella’ that was featured in a Hindi film with the similar name. The movie got awarded with National Film Award for Best Children's Film, in 2007.
