      I had never read Khushwant Singh in his lifetime of 99 years but was curious to read his books since his death recently. Turned out I had a number of his books at home. I picked this autobiography that he wrote in 2002. It is an engaging book, written in an honest style that traces his birth in pre-independence India, his privileged upbringing as a Delhi builder's son, his deep curiosity for the opposite sex, the many people he encountered in his long life ( he remembers anecdotal stories in gre [...]

      I was running out of reasons to not start Khushwant Singh's autobiography which he completed in 2001, when he was 87 and hallucinating over his death. For one, the scale of years that K.S. lived promised much experiences of both failures and achievements, agonies and joys. Considering he spent most of his life experimenting over different passions, holding high-ranks at top bureaucratic offices and ministries, and exchanged ideas with Who-Know-Hos of various fields was more than enough to read h [...]

      Usually autobiographies tend to be massively boring. The writer is usually hell bent on putting on a holier than thou attitude and providing endless explanations about his (usually) much publicised 'mistakes'. Not Khushwant Singh.Here is a man who is not perfect and is only glad to admit that. The writing is of a quality unmatched even by the author's own high standards. Khushwant Singh has been witness to many significant episodes of post independent Indian history and he bares all in this auto [...]

      I have never read a book about Khushwant Singh before. The closest I've come to reading anything written by him, in fact, is Portrait of a Lady, a short story he wrote based off his grandmother, which found my way (and rightly so) into my English textbook in middle/high school. I'm going to spend the rest of my life reading as much as I can of what he wrote. Truth, Love and a Little Malice starts off, in most ways, like autobiographies tend to. A prologue welcomes the reader, providing a gist of [...]

      No doublt Khuswant Singh a fantastic fiction writer in the present sub-continent, have great creative futusion, rythme of sentence with nostugic appeal and a melodious items and obviously a great story teller sine early fifties. Although Truth Love and a Little Malice stated Khuswant own biography but have crutial political adventurous views with involvement and actor as not only in creative sector but also in problem solving. The books divided into several parts from early age of writer, his vi [...]

    6. Jyoti on said:

      It was an enjoyable and easy read. I like the man more after reading his biography. It offered an honest account of his friends, foes and friends who bordered on being foes. His was a life well lived. He believed in working hard despite being born to a rich property developer father. He was poor in studies, practised law but didn't like it, moved to foreign service and public relations, enjoyed working and living in the UK, was generous with food and scotch to many, liked being with good looking [...]

    7. Nathik on said:

      Truth, Love and a Little Malice is the autobiography of the late Mr. Khushwant Singh. Mr K.S is a prolific writer, Journalist, Diplomat, One-term Member of Parliament (Upper House), and a Lawyer ( a bad one, in his view). He is better known as “The Dirty Old-man of Delhi” for his jokes and provocative fictional writings like “The Company of Woman”. His fictional works might reinforce the image of “The Dirty Old-man of Delhi” especially borderline-erotica like “Delhi”, “The Comp [...]

      Little can I say that will add to describe one of the most prolific writers India has witnessed. This book is filled with Khushwantji's trademark sharp wit and humor, along with his universal solution to every problem, a glass of scotch.This book manages to encompass the evolution of the modern Indian writer in the most comprehensive, yet concise manner. Sorry Chetan Bhagat, no mention of you here.Raw uninhibited emotions, stripped down to the bone, no pretensions what so ever. As Hindustan Time [...]

      A weird sentimental ending to this book, by a non-sentimental but emotional sardarji!I regret the delay at which I found out about classy Indian authors such as KS, who wrote to the point and with no wasted words. His acerbic wit, combined with his urbane vocabulary, to describe indigenous terms and processes, in my humble opinion, was his USP!I salute the man and his pen!

      A recommended readable memoir. Nicely written and very well structured. A great man, a great writer. Always heard about him and him being controversial, and now, I have the idea why :)

    11. Farhat Baig on said:

      very badly written so read it for the anecdotes, views on his contemporaries and gossip etc which it is full of

      Read this long back and the title is exactly what the book is about !!

    13. Dr.J.G. on said:

      Surprisingly for an author who was not only funded by various universities and other prestigious institutions of US, UK and India, and edited several books and several periodicals, this autobiography has inexplicable typos or spelling mistakes of trivial sort - and very noticeably so. If one is put off by copious references and more copious descriptions of nether equipment of various characters including the author, and lacks the patience and determination to go past it to see why this person wa [...]

      I found this slightly long, but whenever I read it with patience, I was rewarded. The book includes some great Urdu couplets and several witty quotes.

    16. Anisha on said:

      A very unapologetic and honestly written memoir. Thoroughly enjoyed it. My notion of autobiographies being boring has completed been changed since reading this. It is definitely worth a read.

    17. Chandan on said:

      This was his third book I was reading. it is his autobiography written by him in 2002. It is an engaging book normally autobiographies tend to be boring but he made it interesting. In this book, he has clearly told that he is not perfect and is only glad to admit it. The writing style is catchy and it can attract anyone this was the reason that I completed this book in 2 days. I had never thought to read his autobiography but one of my close friends recommended it and it was worth reading. Khusb [...]

    18. Suriya Gayathri on said:

      Khushwant Singh writes prosaically on his life as an infant born in Hadali to the most loved and notable writer of India. He elaborates on each stage of his professional life from practicing Law to Public Relations, Teaching and finally to Journalism and Writing. The first part of the book comprises of brazenly honest accounts of his life as a confused teenager and the many events associated with it. Reading about his days in Shantiniketan, the atmosphere of Tagore Ashram, meeting Tagore was rev [...]

    19. Lakshmi on said:

      "Truth, love and a little malice" had been a book that had been suggested to be by one of my best friends. Autobiographies had never been my thing because I had a preconceived notion of them being boring. After all, how interesting could an ordinary man's life get was what I used to think. And now that I have read it, I regret not having read it earlier. The experience of coming face-to-face with the human elements of a writer I had always looked up to had been intriguing to say the least.The au [...]

      The Man in The Bulb…One of the most popular writers of India and rightly so, Khushwant Singh is a name synonymous with unapologetic and honest writing. And his autobiography does full justice to that reputation.Not preachy like some stories told, not regretful like some other; he writes confidently of his failures and successes in the same breath, about his journey as to that man he eventually turned out to be. His childhood in Lahore seems to leap out of the book and the entire village become [...]

    21. Tarun Rattan on said:

      It is one of the most honest memoirs I've read and it is the courageous & outspoken KS at his best. You can only pity the people who crossed his path as he spares no body whether they're powerful politicians like Gandhi family or fellow writer's like Naipaul. But one has to admit that his confessions & conjectures are factual and most probably correct. I've been a fan on KS since my school days and would be the first one to buy his books as they would come out and then spend the next day [...]

    22. Mohi Uddin on said:

      It would have been more appropriate if it was called “Truth Love and a Heap of Malice”. The autobiography of the most celebrated and profane writer, Khushwant Singh is definitely worth a read.As is the norm with Khushwant, this book is full of wit, humour, sex, malice and courage. Courage to speak and present his views. The book spans right from the pre-Independence era to the 21st century. It gives us a visual treat of the changing demographics of the Indian sub-continent especially the Nor [...]

    23. Conrad Barwa on said:

      Does emerge as more likeable after reading this; though he still can't quite get rid of the habit of making excuses for Sanjay and Indira Gandhi's behaviour during the Emergency, choosing to place the blame on chamchas, Chief Ministers, bureaucrats and other lackeys overly eager to please them. One wonders who Khuswant thinks allowed such coteries to flourish in the first place. This together with some other irrational advocacies such as his pro-Israeli views, make him appear unable to cast his [...]

    24. FaisalBuzdar on said:

      A witty, unpretentious and highly entertaining, riveting autobiography by Khushwant Singh. Once I started reading it, I simply could not put it down. Singh begins by giving a sketchy account of his time in Hadali, his place of birth and a town in district Khushab (now in Pakistani Punjab). Thereafter, he takes us to all the places he got to live in. Delhi, Lahore, London, Bombay and various small towns where he went to on vacation capture our imagination, as he lucidly dwells on his associations [...]

    25. Kirti Singhal on said:

      This Autobiography of Khushwant Singh covers the account of his life as a writer, politician, Son and it takes you through the turbulent past of Indian politics from 1915 to 1980s'A honest account of his life with lots of colors including some grey too. One actuallys get to know a lot about Sikhs as a community and Sikhism as a religion, how the community has evolved along with the political changes in the country from partition to 1984 communal riots.I liked the sincerity of Khushwant Singh men [...]
