Meri Duniya Mere Dost [My World My Friend] Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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’.
