About the Book

Khushwant Singh (1915-2014) was andis arguably the most well-known Indian English writer in India, known as much or even more for his columns and joke collections as for his writing on the Sikhs, and his fiction. He was a lawyer, a diplomat, a teacher and historian, a journalist and editor of note, a parliamentarian, a representative of the Sikh community, a translator, a novelist and short story writer of note, and simply one of the most-loved Indian writers of his generation. A winner of the Padma Vibushan, his writings chart the changes that India experienced from mid-20th century through the first decade of the new millennium. This book charts the life and times of this fascinating multi-faceted personality and gives us a quick and insightful reading of his literary works.
