Freehand Writing

The grand old man of letters, Khushwant Singh, touching 100, is all set to come out with his new book, A Freethinker’s Prayer Book. Editors working with him say he is as excited as always before the launch of a new book, his memory is sharp as ever, but only that he gets tired soon. And if you thought he has sobered up, sample these lines from the book: “Old age is a nuisance. It buggers up your life. Though I have not yet gone senile and I have been spared the indignity of bedpans and nurses wiping my bottom, it is now time to go.”
