The writers settled abroad and the ones who divide their time between India and abroad have contributed much to this rapidly developing Indian Literature sub-genre of English literature. Now Indian English literature no longer remains limited to the writings necessarily of the “sons of the soil”. It has broadened the scope of fictional concerns of these writers from purely Indian to the global and transnational. Today Indian English as well as Indian writing in English has got its own identity. A number of recent Indian novelists have produced significant novels, making a mark in the literary world. One among the very few Indian authors in English who are marketed well by the media, are encouraged by schools and parents is Ruskin Bond. Ruskin Bond is the acclaimed author of over five hundred novellas, stories, essays and poetry - all of which has established him as one of the India’s most beloved writers. India gets an exquisite reflection in his stores. The sole point is not to entertain. His approach to his child characters, their activities, desire, feeling win the favour of the readers.
Ruskin Bond is thus, in no way inferior to any of his contemporaries. His works are neither ambiguous nor theoretical. As a very simple and ordinary man he shares with us the most intimate moments of his life and lives of those with whom he has come in close contact. This paper intends to look at him more closely about the changes he brought in Indian Literature through his writings. His works are highly approved by society at large. His stories are very famous and he writes in an extremely enjoyable language and style which even holds a child throughout the entire narrative. He is considered to be one of the icons among Indian writers and children's authors and a top novelist. He has received many awards for his fictional works. His works are set in India, the land where he was born and grew up.

Key Words: Ruskin Bond, Indian English, writers.
