The wittiest Sardar of them all has finally breathed his last!

I am a huge fan of his writings. He was fantastic, and his way of assassinating big egos with words was simply unbeatable.

RIP Khushwant Singh.

I can't say I've read anything of his in the past 10 odd years, but he was definitely witty and sufficiently irreverent to make his earlier writings fun to read. Lead a full life, and time to move on!

Kushwant Singh will be missed. I had the privilege of meeting him at Delhi airport back in June 1994.

Khushwant Singh represented the best years of the Indian press.

He was a delightful man, and will be missed.
