Khushwant Singh

Khushwant Singh

This is with reference to the sad demise of one of India’s most prominent writers, Khushwant Singh, after having ticked off almost a century of celebrated existence. Khushwant Singh had been an observant bystander to the making of most public and (private) histories than most of us have ever heard or read about. He had an illustrious career, spanning both the pre- and post-Independence periods of the country, and was the founder editor of Yojana, the editor of TheIllustrated Weekly of India, The National Herald and the Hindustan Times. He was the man behind eternal classics like Train to Pakistan, I Shall Not Hear the Nightingale and Delhi: a Novel. His non-fiction comprises the classic two-volume A History of the Sikhs, a number of translations and well-researched works on Sikh religion and culture, Urdu poetry, current affairs, nature and on the city of Delhi.
