A history of the Sikhs by Khushwant Singh( Book )

117 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1963, this remains the most comprehensive and authoritative book on the Sikhs. The new edition updated to the present recounts the return of the community to the mainstream of national life. Written in Khushwant Singh's trademark style to be accessible to a general, non-scholarly audience, the book is based on scholarly archival research. Volume 1: 1469-1839: This volume covers the social, religious and political background which led to the formation of the Sikh faith in the fifteenth century. Basing his account on original documents in Persian, Gurmukhi and English, the author traces the growth of Sikhism and tells of the compilation of its sacred scriptures in the Granth Sahib. The transformation of the Sikhs from a pacifist sect to a militant group called the Khasla led by Guru Gobind Singh is portrayed in detail, as is the relationship of theSikhs with the Mughals and the Afghans, until the consolidation of Sikh power under Maharaja Ranjit Singh

Delhi : a portrait by Khushwant Singh( Book )

53 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in 11 languages and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vast, erotic, irreverant magnum opus on the city of Delhi. The principal narrator of the saga, which extends over six hundred years, is a bawdy, ageing [sic] reprobate who loves Delhi as much as he does the hijda whore Bhagmati--half man, half woman with the sexual inventiveness and energy of both the sexes. Travelling through time, space and history to 'discover' his beloved city, the narrator meets a myriad of people--poets and princes, saints and sultans, temptresses and traitors, emperors and eunuchs--who have participated in (and been witness to) the major historical forces that have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique."--Page 4 of cover

19 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recently separated from his nagging, ill-tempered wife of thirteen years, millionaire businessman Mohan Kumar decides to reinvent his life. Convinced that 'lust is the true foundation of love', he embarks on an audacious plan: he will advertise for paid lady companions to share his bed and his life. Thus begins his journey of easy, unbridled sexuality in the company of some remarkable women. There is Sarojini Bharadwai, the demure professor from small-town Haryana who surprises Mohan with her ardour and sexual energy; Molly Gomes, the free-spirited masseuse from Goa, mistress of the sensual impulse; and Susanthika Goonatilleke, the diminutive seductress from Sri Lanka. After each affair ends and before the next begins, Mohan finds solace in the practiced charms of his obliging maid, Dhanno, and in the memories of his first lovers: the American Jessica Browne, to whom he lost his virginity, and the Pakistani Yasmeen Wanchoo, who brought him the heady passion of an older woman. In The Company of Women, Khushwant Singh, India's most widely read author, has produced an uninhibited, erotic and endlessly entertaining celebration of love, sex and passion."--Back cover
