Tissot’s newly launched sporty-Chic Lady Glamourous Watch!
Pandit Preetam Sharma, Nawab Barkatullah Baig and Sardar Boota Singh have been friends for over forty years, they are now in their eighties; and every evening, at the sunset hour, they sit together on a bench in Lodhi Gardens and talk about the day and their life so far.
This is Kushwant Singh’s last book and while it is typical in his humour and cynicism, Sunset Club brings out a beautiful aspect of friendship that has never before been seen. One starts looking forward to their daily meeting and the new aspect of life that they will share. It makes you want to reach out to all your old friends and somewhere hope that you will also have someone in your life at this Sunset stage of life. From our book review section we recommend it as It is a deeply moving book that captures life and nature at its best. Anyone who has ever lived in Delhi in the eighties will want to revisit Lodhi gardens and all the other little green patches of land that we picnicked and played in.
It is a short book capturing their lives over just one year starting out on the 26 January 2009, but takes you through a myriad of emotions. In the background he also takes you through the journey of India at that time with the general elections and the various other civil aspects of the society. It is his typically piquant portrayal of incidents, sorrows, joys, love, lust and so much more that leave you laughing and crying at the same time.
