    The kind of intimacy experienced while writing by hand is amiss in a typewriter or a laptop, says celebrated author Ruskin Bond, who also believes that the good-old style is me

    The kind of intimacy experienced while writing by hand is amiss in a typewriter or a laptop, says celebrated author Ruskin Bond, who also believes that the goodold style is mentally satisfying. One of India’s most-loved and revered authors, Bond, who turned 84 yesterday, still churning out thousands of words even before breakfast every day.

    In a new book “Stumbling Through Life”, the writer also reveals why he is enamoured by the ballpoint pen instead of a fountain pen, which found favour with legends such as Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, Rabindranath Tagore and Munshi Premchand. Bond says over the many, many years he has done most of his writing by hand and only occasionally resorted to a typewriter. He recalls that as a boy he even took lessons for shorthand and typing but soon these forms of writing turned obsolete.
