Author: Khushwant Singh
ISBN/UPC (if available): 0141005769
This selection brings together the best of Khushwant Singh's articles from a wide variety of magazines and newspapers, and documents his inimitable perceptions on Parliament, film star MPs, censorship and communalism.
Khushwant Singh, India's most widely read columnist, has been a keen observer of life in India - its politics, economics, religion, habits, customs, events and personalities. This selection is a chronicle of the state of the nation - as it was and as it is, and the way it is going to be. It also reflects the Indian psyche - the way we are.
Containing pieces on subjects ranging from Kentucky Fried Chicken to the Kumbh Mela, the Golden Temple to the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, Osho to Bhinderwale, and pornography to family planning, this is an insightful, candid and provocative collection.
