The most well-known novel written by him in 1956 was Train to Pakistan, the great depiction of 1947 Partition of India. His autobiography Khushwantnama – The Lessons of my Life was published in 2013 when he turned 98 on the Independence day. 

Khushwantnama is partially an autobiography and partially commentary on Khushwant’s favourite subjects such as politics, religion, society and India’s future. The book encloses the depiction and relevance of Secularism, the pain of partition, the joys of sex, the pleasures of poetry and the significance of laughter in life.
