- Book Of Unforgettable Women
DetailsKhushwant Singh s Book of Unforgettable Women is a brilliant recount of women in the author's life - women who left their mark by shaping up his perspectives on different aspects. Khushwant Singh had quoted that women had sought his company more than he sought theirs, although he was nothing to look at! In this book, Khushwant chronicles the profiles of a few women he had known in his lifetime. Ghayoorunnisa Hafeez - the girl who changed his stance on Muslims forever, his wife Kaval Malik - who is sensitive to media publicity, his grandmother, the debated artist Amrita Shergil, Mother Teresa, Phoolan Devi Khushwant paints vibrant and true-to-life depictions of the women he had known, loved, loathed, respected, and lived with. The book also describes some of those women that Khushwant Singh has conjured up in his stories and novels he had written over six decades. The dynamic Martha Stack from Black Jasmine, Lady Mohan Lal from Karma, Jean Memsahib from The Memsahib of Mandla, the greedy Champak from I Shall Not Hear The Nightingale, the dark-eyed Nooran from Train to Pakistan and the free-spirited Molly Gomes from The Company of Women are some of his flamboyant characters who are certainly going to amuse you.
