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

"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

Burial at sea by Khushwant Singh( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this, his fifth novel, one of India's most widely read authors returns to territories he knows best: twentieth-century Indian history, bogus religion and sexuality. After Nehru, Victor Jai Bhagwan is Mahatma Gandhi's favourite Indian--a brilliant young man with the temperament of a leader and fiercely committed to his country. Though Victor adores and respects Gandhi, he disagrees with the Mahatma's vision for the future of India. He returns from university in England determined to bring the benefits of modern industry to the subcontinent, and within a few years of India's independence, becomes the country's biggest tycoon. But this is not the only ideal of Gandhi's that he defies: facing a midlife crisis, he falls passionately in love with a tantric god-woman (who keeps a tiger as her pet and has a dubious past). She introduces him to the pleasures of unbridled sexuality, but also becomes the reason for his downfall. Comic, tender and erotic by turns, Burial at Sea is vintage Khushwant Singh
