An icon and legend in his life time, Khushwant Singh was arguably
India's most popular writer. Nothing mattered to him except writing
the truth, as he saw it. Writing was his life and his pen wrote on till
his last breath. There was a time when literate India could not do
without the chota peg of Kushwant--an intelligent tapestry of his
secular thoughts, humour, poetry, sarcasm and acid wit. Once called
'Zorba the Sardar', Kushwant Singh was a free thinker and a warrior
of ideas who used his pen like a sword. As an iconoclast and rebel,
he tried to blast the humbug of hypocrisy. His works expressed his
anger at issues of communalism, sexual taboos and he had a
don't-give-a-damn attitude to exposing the foolishness of people.
Internationally acclaimed for his books, Train to Pakistan and
A History of the Sikhs, he was called a 'dirty old man' for his explicit
erotica. 'Maybe they call me that because I have a bath after many
days', he said. People loved what he did, what he said and what he
wrote. They still do and and that is what this book is all about.
