The present paper is an attempt to understand the select ghost stories of Ruskin Bond which have been adapted and broadcast by the OTT platform ZEE5 in the beginning of 2019 as a web series entitled as “Parchayee: Ghost Stories by Ruskin Bond”. The Ghost in the Garden, The Wind on Haunted Hill, Wilson’s Bridge and The Overcoat are adapted short stories of Bond. The two award-winning directors, V.K. Prakash and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury directed the screen versions of the stories. At that time Bond who has been 84, spoke at length about his favourite ghost stories, his inspirations and the prospect of seeing his stories on screen in an exclusive email interview with Lounge.
