Khushwant Singh

Khushwant SinghWe are deeply mourned at the demise of Khushwant Singh, who had been our long associate in the movement to uproot superstition and to establish a social system based on equity and liberty.
In spite of being a nonagenarian, he kept his mental facilities all intact and lived and died young in the truest sense of the term. Throughout his illustrious life, he was never hesitant to speak his mind out, which is why perhaps he was so admired & disparaged as well. Equipped with an enviable individuality & sense of humor, he loved to perforate puffed up egos and felt some people at times take themselves too seriously.
He always scoffed at rituals, superstition and astrology and went on record saying “Work is worship, worship is not work”. He had profound hatred towards religious fundamentalism of all sorts and considered it as the main challenge facing India.
As rightly quoted by his son Rahul, Khushwant Singh reminded us of one of the very few who could walk with the crowd and keep his virtue, or walk with kings-without loosing the common touch.
He went the way he always wanted to go…peacefully without suffering but not before he made the world a better place.
Our sincere and deep condolences remain with his bereaved family members.
