    Another one of the gems from the hands of Mr Bond Mr Bond has an uncanny ability to look for beauty in even the simplest of places and people The town is described by Mr Bond as Nothing much ever happens at Fosterganj However, if you have a keen eye for beauty and detail and an uncanny habit of finding yourself in trouble and adventures, a lot can happen in Fosterganj What s there not to like about this wonderful collection.Put together a beautiful mountain setting and an eclectic bun Another one of the gems from the hands of Mr Bond Mr Bond has an uncanny ability to look for beauty in even the simplest of places and people The town is described by Mr Bond as Nothing much ever happens at Fosterganj However, if you have a keen eye for beauty and detail and an uncanny habit of finding yourself in trouble and adventures, a lot can happen in Fosterganj What s there not to like about this wonderful collection.Put together a beautiful mountain setting and an eclectic bunch of characters a pickpocket, a bank manager always on a lookout for Leopards, an old cranky Scotsman with crazy business ideas, a humble and friendly baker, a spooky castle and a jewellery thief and you have got a brilliant cocktail called Tales of Fosterganj.Mr Bond always brings out magic with his pen and from his eyes this world looks like a beautiful place His books never fail to bring smile on your lips and makes you forget all the worries you might be having in your life I think psychiatrists should prescribe his books as a cure for depression I m sure its going to help a lot of needy people.In the end I just want to say that may God bless him with a long life and he keeps writing such gems in the future
