Mano Majra is a place, Khushwant Singh tells us at the beginning of this classic novel, where Sikhs and Muslims have lived together in peace for hundreds of years. Then one day, at the end of the summer, the "ghost train" arrives, a silent, incredible funeral train loaded with the bodies of thousands of refuges, bringing the village its first taste of the horrors of the civil war. Train to Pakistan is the story of this isolated village that is plunged into the abyss of religious hate. It is also the story of a Sikh boy and a Muslim girl whose love endures and transcends the ravages of war. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Thottam.

‘The Grand Old Man of Indian Writing’, Khushwant Singh was a famous Indian writer and journalist. In a career spanning many decades, he wrote several novels, articles, stories and memoirs. He is known for his colourful characters, his unabashed portrayal of intimate relationships, his controversial choices of subjects and his playful approach towards showcasing human eccentricities in his writings. His best-selling books include A History of the Sikhs, Train to Pakistan, Delhi: A Novel, Ranjit Singh: Maharaja of the Punjab, and an autobiography, Truth, Love and a Little Malice. The only play written by him in his long career, Tiger Tiger serves as the perfect site for Singh to showcase a vast array of characters whose lives get intertwined due to unavoidable circumstances. Through this, he is able to present a critique of society and its double standards, using this opportunity to explore some of his favourite themes like cultural difference, prejudice, hypocrisy and deception. The plot of the play is fairly simple: away from the rest of the civilisation, in the heart of a protected forest is a hotel where tourists from different countries collect to observe the wild beasts. As the narrative progresses, however, we discover that the real confrontation that is happening here is between cultures, traditions and beliefs. His comparisons of social and behavioural characteristics of Westerners and Indians are laced with acid wit. In this wild tale filled with humour, passion and intoxication, Singh exposes the fakeness of human existence and the lies that we tell each other, and most importantly, ourselves, to survive.Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi. 1.

Khushwant Singh, a prominent Indian novelist and journalist, was born on 2 February 1915 in Hadali, in British India (now a part of Pakistan), and is famous for books like A History of the Sikhs, Train to Pakistan, Delhi: A Novel, Ranjit Singh: Maharaja of the Punjab and an autobiography, Truth, Love and a Little Malice. Famous for his uncensored depiction of Indian society in his writings, his abiding love for poetry and people, and his wit, Singh’s characters are always familiar, and his narratives are filled with satirical observations. Meri Duniya Mere Dost is a collection of Hindi translations of Singh’s writings that consists of personal notes, memoirs, articles, philosophical musings and some wit from this beloved author whose career has spanned multiple decades. The work consists of five sections, each dedicated to an aspect of Singh’s life, giving us a glimpse of his world, his memories, his thoughts, and his eccentricities. Starting with responding to some important events, debates and controversies around his life (Meri Duniya), Singh, in these five sections, takes us on a journey that involves him meeting some remarkable people with fascinating stories (‘Ye Kuch Log’), a country that is living both in its past and its present (‘Mera Desh’) and a contemplation on the true meaning of happiness, family, life and death (‘Jeene Ki Raah’), signing off with his trademark humour and a devil-may-care attitude (‘Kuch Hansi Mazaak’). Bringing together various aspects of his scandalous, entertaining and ever-intriguing life, this audiobook is the portrait of a man who has ‘Malice towards One and All’.Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi. 1.
