    Description

    Khushwantnama is a collection of memoirs, part-reflection and part-autobiographical by eminent writer Khushwant Singh.

    Summary of the Book

    In this book, titled after the Baburnama and Akbarnama, Khushwant Singh talks about his life and experiences, offering advice alongside anecdotes where he can. Clubbing humour with seriousness, he speaks of myriad topics, covering tips on braving old age and fending off the perils of bad health and extrapolating on the meaning of religion. Ever the satirist, he explains how humour and laughter play a vital role in our lives and how they have helped keep him spry even in his old age. A rare insight into the life of the man who was known as the Grand Old Man of Indian Letters, this book treats readers by offering Khushwant Singh's memories of the Partition and the changes which India went through after it. His humour and wit leave no topic unaddressed and touch upon the joys of sex with the flighty desires of a twenty-year old. His wisdom has shaped many generations and this book serves to shape many more after one of India's finest writers.
