€˜A Khushwant Singh short story is not flamboyant but modest, restrained, well-crafted €¦Perhaps his greatest gift as a writer is a wonderful particularity of description' €"London Magazine Khushwant Singh first established his reputation as a writer through the short story. His stories €"wry, poignant, erotic and, above all, human €"bear testimony to Khushwant Singh's remarkable range and his ability to create an unforgettable world.
