Sunny Singh praises the Salman Rushdie's literary achievement

Instead of entering the lively debate provoked by the knighting of Salman Rushdie, Indian writer Sunny Singh pays homage to his literary talent. "Mr. Rushdie's pen seems to have grown blunt as his social appearances take precedence. His success continues to be more important and more durable than any fatwa or controversy: Salman Rushdie's greatest achievement was to blast open the hallowed portals of writing in English for a whole generation of writers from the former colonies. And he did that to the sound of joyous - albeit at times, sly - laughter, with luminous prose that thrilled and delighted. If he never puts down a single word on paper ever again, his oeuvre is worthy of respect. For that alone, his knighthood (and any other honour) is well deserved. And it is the most appropriate response to the religious loons who demand his head!"
