This book is a compilation of classic short stories by five great Indian writers - Raja Rao, Rabindranath Tagore, Premchand, Dr. Mulk Raj Anand and Khushwant Singh. Though not necessarily representative of the authors’ complete works, the stories have been carefully chosen to showcase their versatility and skill as storytellers. The collection covers an extraordinary range of themes, styles and settings, allowing the reader to get a glimpse of another world gone by.

3 Khushwant Singh
Burial at Sea
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143032615 / 9780143032618; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In this, his first novella in five years, one of India’s most widely read authors returns to territories he knows best: twentieth-century Indian history, bogus religion, and sexuality. After Nehru, Victor Jai Bhagwan is Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite Indian—a brilliant young man with the temperament of a leader and fiercely committed to his country. Though Victor adores and respects Gandhi, he disagrees with the Mahatma’s vision for the future of India. He returns from university in England determined to bring the benefits of modern industry to the subcontinent and, within a few years of India’s independence, becomes the country’s biggest tycoon. But this is not the only ideal of Gandhi’s that he defies: facing a midlife crisis, he falls passionately in love with a tantric god-woman (who keeps a tiger as her pet and has a dubious past). She introduces him to the pleasures of unbridled sexuality, but also becomes the reason for his downfall. Comic, tender and erotic by turns, Burial at Sea is vintage Khushwant Singh.

7 Khushwant Singh
Delhi: A Novel
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0140126198 / 9780140126198; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Thus begins Khushwant Singh’s vast, erotic, irrelevant magnum opus on the city of Delhi. The principal narrator of the saga, which extends over six hundred years, is a bawdy, ageing reprobate who loves Delhi as much as he does the hijda whore Bhagmati—half man, half woman with sexual inventiveness and energy of both the sexes. Travelling through time, space and history to ‘discover’ his beloved city, the narrator meets a myriad of people—poets and princes, saints and sultans, temptresses and traitors, emperors and eunuchs—who have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique… And as we accompany the narrator on his epic journey we find the city of emperors transformed and immortalized in our minds for ever.

8 Khushwant Singh
Hymns of Guru Naka (Illustrated)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8125011617 / 9788125011613; Reissue; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this translation of some of Guru Nanak’s finest devotional poems, the fifteenth century founder of the Sikh religion points the way to self-realisation by love, devotion, and service to man and God. The hymns have as direct and strong a message today as they did when they were first composed. The elements of faith and passion are sensitively brought out in Arpita Singh’s paintings which, in colour and inspired drawing, heighten the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of Guru Nanak’s divine verse.

India: An Introduction is a highly readable and rewarding initiation into a complex, ancient civilization, by one of India's most widely-read writers and journalists.Khushwant Singh tells the story of the land and its people from the earliest time to the present day.

He is also an enlightening guide to much else: India's extensive and varied architectural splendours, its art and classical literature.Khushwant Singh's own fascination with the subject is contagious, showing through on every page, and in every sidelight that he recounts. India: An Introduction holds strong appeal for just about anyone. who has more than a passing interest in the country, Indians as well as those who are drawn to it from farther afield. And for a traveller, it is that rare companion: erudite, intelligent, lively.Printed Pages: 216. 106661

11 Rakhshanda Jalil (Author), Prabhas Roy (Photographs) & Khushwant Singh (Frwd)
Invisible City: The Hidden Monuments of Delhi
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738771 / 9788189738778; Hardcover; New; New; 
Of all the metros in the country Delhi holds the distinction of being the nerve center of power not only in present times but also in the years past. This is all the more reflected in the multitude of old-world buildings that grace the historic landscape of the city. It comes as a surprise to know that many of these historic buildings are exiled from public view simply because nobody knows about their existence. Rakshanda Jalil’s book Invisible City: The Hidden Monuments of Delhi focuses on 49 such monuments and provides the reader with quick facts about the buildings, their surroundings, genesis and current conditions. Divided into seven short sections: Pre-Sultanate, Sultanate, Tughlaq, Saiyyid, Lodi, Mughal and post-Mughal, it has a foreword by the renowned writer Khushwant Singh. It is packed with pictures, illustrations and maps and is definitely a great resource for history buffs as well as to all those wishing to preserve the historical heritage of the city.Printed Pages: 342 with 293 photographs & 1 map. 106568

16 Khushwant Singh
Obituaries: Death at My Doorstep
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817436708X / 9788174367082; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
For Khushwant Singh who wrote his own obituary in his twenties, death is not sacred but he reflects on it increasingly these days. In Death At My Doorstep, a collection of obituaries written over the years, he presents the dead in death, as in life—good, bad or ugly. Be it on the twilight hours of Bhutto, the gory end of Sanjay Gandhi, the sycophantic M.O. Mathai, the Marxist millionaire Rajni Patel, the overbearing Lord Mountbatten, or on his pet Alsatian Simba, each obituary bears out his irreverence or affection. Cocking a snook at death, he has also penned his own epitaph. Yet outliving those whom he admired has moved him to tears, and many of his obituaries have left the reader with a heavy heart. While Death At My Doorstep is Khushwant Singh’s demystification of death, it also ferries his message to Badey Mian, in the words of Allama Iqbal: Baagh-e-bahisht say mujhay hukm-e-safar diya thha kyon? Kaar-e-Jahaan daraaz hai, ab meyra intazaar kar. (Why did you order me out of the garden of paradise? I have a lot of work that remains unfulfilled; now you better wait for me.)

Sahibs Who Loved India
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0143415808 / 9780143415800; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A rare collection of essays that invites the reader to revisit a vanished era of sahibs and memsahibs. From Lord Mountbatten to Peggy Holroyde to Maurice and Taya Zinkin, Britishers who lived and worked in India reminisce about topics and points of interest as varied as the Indian Civil Service and the Roshanara Club, shikar and hazri, the Amateur Cine Society of India and the Doon School, Rudyard Kipling and Mahatma Gandhi. Selected from a series of articles commissioned by Khushwant Singh when he was the editor of the Illustrated Weekly of India these delightfully individualistic and refreshingly candid writings reveal a fascinating array of British attitudes, experiences, observations, fond memories, the occasional short-lived grouses and, above all, a deep and abiding affection and respect for India.

20 Sita Ram Kohli; Edited By Khushwant Singh
Sunset of the Sikh Empire
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125044760 / 9788125044765; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Sunset of the Sikh Empire is the last book of Sita Ram Kohli, edited by Khushwant Singh and published posthumously in 1967. The book provides a detailed history of the ten years between the death of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the annexation of the Sikh Empire by the British. The author has utilised a huge mass of material pertaining to Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s times—about three lakh folios covering the period of the Lahore Darbar from 1811 to 1849, kept in the tomb of Anarkali at Lahore—and British archival material from the National Archives, New Delhi. Day-to-day events are explained in detail, with dates being cross-referenced from various sources. This classic reissue retains the sanctity of the 1967 edition while giving it a completely new look. This authoritative work is a primary sourcebook that will appeal to students and scholars of history and colonial studies. Printed pages: 222. 036905
