Table of Contents


Khushwant Singh was a raconteur par excellence. He ruled the literary pages with his narrative skills; his unerring ear for dialogue; his ability to create authentic, memorable characters; and his powerful evocation of time, mood and place.

Though his mother-tongue was Punjabi and he was culturally more aligned to Urdu, he chose to write in English but remained soaked in Punjabi, Urdu and European literature throughout his life. He was also equally prolific in translations. He read much, and translated much of what he enjoyed.
