  Khushwant Singh’s family was rich. His father’s name was Sir Sobha Singh who was a builder and contractor. His Mother’s name was Lady Varyam Kaur.

Rahul Singh, a distinguished journalist, has inherited his love for Pakistan from his legendary father Khushwant Singh. Hiding behind distinguished Indian journalist Rahul Singh’s calm exterior, is the excitement at having been able to take a pilgrimage to Hadali. First published in , 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/5(3). Caustic columnist, noted contemporary fiction writer, and a poet of repute, Khushwant Singh was a man of many talents. But for the common man, his most well known work will always be his joke books.
