Unexpected gem of an autobiography. The initial chapters were deceptively bad Mar 20, Vidhya Nair rated it really liked it Shelves: already-read , owned-book. I had never read Khushwant Singh in his lifetime of 99 years but was curious to read his books since his death recently. Turned out I had a number of his books at home. I picked this autobiography that he wrote in It is an engaging book, written in an honest style that traces his birth in pre-independence India, his privileged upbringing as a Delhi builder's son, his deep curiosity for the opposite sex, the many people he encountered in his long life he remembers anecdotal stories in gre I had never read Khushwant Singh in his lifetime of 99 years but was curious to read his books since his death recently.

I was running out of reasons to not start Khushwant Singh's autobiography which he completed in , when he was 87 and hallucinating over his death.
For one, the scale of years that K.

Considering he spent most of his life experimenting over different passions, holding high-ranks at top bureaucratic offices and ministries, and exchanged ideas with Who-Know-Hos of various fields was more than enough to read his invaluable work.
But it wasn't just his work profiles or his life experiences of over 85 years which compelled me to pick his book. It was also about his novels, novellas, fiction based on women sexuality, non-fiction based on his argument against God's existence, and his witty, seamless writing too. It seemed, going through all of these works, that K. It turned out that oceans of stories was more or less an undervaluation. The stories begin from his childhood: stories about how he tricked his seniors in schools with his ingenious traps; of how he saw his college teacher having sex with his wife while strolling on the hostel roof.
Stories about many high-profile friends he met in his life, and about myriads ways he charmed the ladies. But I wasn't looking for them. The stories were superficial. They were written as first-hand accounts. How K. The true assessment that an auto-biography offers of a writer's life wasnt there.
I think he should have written stories not as a way of narrating it but as a to access himself. For me the biography took my attention from 3rd chapter when Singh begin to tell tales of watershed historical events.
The best I read was that of Partition. He narrated various anecdotes without any hatred towards Muslims or undue support for Hindu mobs. He talked about how the whole country was on a potboiler, one small skirmish and the whole country would fall into chaotic riots. He talked about the judicial system. The judicial system wasnt based on justice but on who the judge was and who the conivct was.
If a Hindu was being judged by Muslim, he had no hope of getting free, no matter what the evidences were. And the same with Muslim being judged by Hindu. The readers came to know about the incidents not from the perspective of the Historian that Singh is, but as a first-hand account that Singh experienced.
The divergences in history books of India and Pakistan questions the veracity of the history of partition, but real-time experiences such as Singh's give the opportunity to see history as it was. He later talked about writing the famous 2-volume Sikh history. But here, I felt the need to know more. Singh told how he wrote the subject, while I was looking for the subject and not how he wrote it. In subsequent chapters, Singh described important events of his life.
His diplomatic missions, his work as an editor of Yojana and Illustrated weekly, the emergency period, and much more. The chapter where Singh talked about his work as an editor of Yojana and Illustrated Weekly gave me what I wanted to really know: how he went about his work. He told how he travelled the whole country for finding themes for the magazines and how he build a famous magazine out of scratch. At the end, I am not fully satisfied nor fully dissatisfied. This autobiography tells a great deal about the author, but only at a superficial level.
The writing is engrossing, witty, and full of lively metaphors and english and Urdu poems. The Significance of String Professor of Anthropology Bruce Hardy makes headlines for his study on the cognitive abilities of Neanderthals.

Let's Change The World Together. He talks of his first awkward sexual encounter, his phobia of ghosts and his fascination with death. He talks of the friends who betrayed him and also the ones he himself failed.

Firstly, the lawyer who has become disillusioned with legal practice and needs some words of comfort; Khushwant Singh writes:.
The most important thing that happened to me with the partition of India was that I was able to get out of the legal profession. I swore I would never back to it.
