Although physically handicapped, her adventurous spirit takes her on lonely rambles into the wildlife sanctuary. She knows the ways of the jungle and its creatures great and small. A charming story, full of incident and good feeling. Atiyas flute has a special magic of its own.Ruskin Bond Atiya Sardare lives with her dad, a forest officer. An only child, afflicted by polio, she finds solace and peace in the jungle, exploring it on short, secret, often dangerous treks. On one occasion she hears the haunting notes of a flute. It gives her goose bumps. She vows to learn to play the instrument much against her fathers wishes. Her music lessons bring her close to the grouchy old anthropologist, Ogre Uncle, and his Kurumba tribal daughter, Mishora. Atiyas gift transforms her fathers view, it calms the rogue elephant, Rangappa and helps nurture a blossoming friendship between a teenage boy and girl. A moving, tender, and mesmerizing tale, Flute in the Forest has wonderful incidents based on the real-life experiences of the author.
