Khushwant Singh, 96, talks sitting next to a fireplace in his house in New Delhi. The famously grumpy writer, known for everything from beautifully wrought novels to fart jokes, has been a giant of India's literary world for more than sixty years. The lawyer-turned-diplomat-turned-writer insists his latest book will be his last. The work is a novel about two old men, written by a 96-year-old who says he can't have much time left.

The Sunset Toast This time Gursharan Kaur was no gatecrasher at Khushwant Singh’s book launch. “She’s a crowd-puller,” said the witty sardar. The Sunset Club, he promises (seventh time), is his last book.

The Ink Flows
At 95, Khushwant Singh is still at it—releasing his latest book, Absolute Khushwant, and speaking his mind. When the PM’s wife Gursharan Kaur turned up uninvited at the launch party, he seated her next to him even as he announced publicly that she was a “gate-crasher”. Also seen here, columnist Humra Quraishi, who helped write the book.
