About the book

Well known for his unabashed interest in the fairer sex, Khushwant Singh revelled in the notorietyhis interest evoked, almost as much as he did in the response he received from women. Indeed, thisenduring obsession provided fodder for some of Singh's best-known work, both as a journalist and asa peerless raconteur.On Women, a wide-ranging selection of Singh's writings on the subject, includes Singh's recountingof an embarrassingly drunken meeting with Begum Para, an actress of yesteryears; a sharp profile ofShraddha Mata, a tantric sadhvi who was alleged to have borne Jawaharlal Nehru's illegitimate child;and a touching sketch of Singh's grandmother in the twilight of her life. Also featured in this volumeare unforgettable women characters from Khushwant Singh's most popular works of fiction: Georgine,a clueless American teenager who is seduced by a middle-aged tour guide in Delhi; and Nooran, ayoung girl in pre-Partition Punjab, who discovers the sweet pleasure of first love only to be overtakenby cataclysmic events which leave her adrift.Insightful, poignant, and occasionally wicked, the essays and extracts in On Women are testament towhy Khushwant Singh remains one of the most popular writers of our times.
