It is most gratifying for me, at ninety-one, to know that there are people still wanting to read me. My first book, The Mark of Vishnu and Other Stories, was published in London in 1950. I have never stopped writing since then: novels, short stories, biographies, history, translations, poetry, nature ? down to gossip and pointless tittle-tattle. I?ve had more than my fair share of adoration and condemnation; I?ve taken both in my stride. I have now taken sanyas in my home. The days of vigorous games of tennis, long walks in Lodi Gardens, hours of doing lengths in the Golf Club open-air swimming pool are behind me. My vision is impaired and I have other ailments which come with old age. I have less zeal for reading or writing and more time to ruminate over times past. The knowledge that Harper Collins is reissuing some of my works will sweeten the last years of my life.
