India An Introduction - Book By Khushwant Singh

Summary of 'India An Introduction' By Khushwant Singh 

It is most gratifying for me, at ninety-one, to know that there are people still wanting to read me. My first book, The Mark of Vishnu and Other Stories, was published in London in 1950. I have never stopped writing since then: novels, short stories, biographies, history, translations, poetry, nature-down to gossip and pointless tittle-tattle. I've had more than my fair share of adoration and condemnation; I've taken both in my stride.

I have now taken sanyas in my home. The days of vigorous games of tennis, long walks in Lodi Gardens, hours of doing lengths in the Golf Club open-air swimming pool are behind me. My vision is impaired and I have other ailments which come with old age. I have less zeal for reading or writing and more time to ruminate over times past. The knowledge that Harper Collins is re­issuing some of my works will sweeten the last years of my life.
