Khushwant Singh is no more.

Noted writer and journalist Khushwant Singh passed away today. He was 99. Singh was best known for his incisive secularism, his humour, and an abiding love for poetry. Born on February 2, 1915 at Hadali, now in Pakistan, Singh wrote classics like “Train to Pakistan”, “I Shall Not Hear the Nightingale” and “Delhi”.

He was a lawyer-turned-diplomat-turned-writer. His autobiography, “Truth, Love and a Little Malice”, was published by Penguin Books in 2002.

He was editor of several literary and news magazines, including the Illustrated Weekly of India as well as two newspapers, the Hindustan Times and the National Herald, through the 1970s and 1980s. In 2007, he was awarded with the Padma Vibhushan.
