A turbulent courtship with the beautiful Kaval Malik culminated in marriage. The Lahore High Court plagued with touts was traded for diplomatic postings in England and Canada. A stint at the UNESCO in Paris followed. Much to the disappointment of his father Sir Sobha Singh he cut short a diplomatic career for an assignment with All India Radio. An outstanding journalist and columnist Khushwant Singh has earned respect and malice in equal measure.
