Volume â€“ One
The trouble with us Indians is that while we like laughing at others we cannot laugh at ourselves. However we do enjoy humorous writings, says the author. This big mega seller bears witness to this testimony. This book is a masala mix of desi buffoonery, political jibes, communication gaffes, social blunders...
Volume â€“ Two
Khushwant Singh is at his best when poking fun at Indians. There are dozens of Sardarji jokes, all of them charmingly toldâ€¦ and many quite delightful ones on Pakistan.
Witty, ribald, hilarious... No string of adjectives would suffice to describe this selection by the wittiest Sardarji of them all, and designed to give the reader a pain in the belly.
