After winning the National Award for Padman, author Twinkle Khanna has just won at the 17th Crossword Book Awards in the Fiction category for her third book published in 2018, Pyjamas Are Forgiving.

On receiving the award Khanna says, “I am overwhelmed to receive this award for Pyjamas are Forgiving. I have always been immersed in the world of words as a reader and now I am grateful that it is as a writer as well. I am glad that Pyjamas are Forgiving has found so many readers.”


The Crossword Book Awards not only recognize and reward good writing but also actively promote Indian authors and their books - making it the only Indian award of its kind to do so. The Crossword Book Award is the only forum in India that gives a face to Indian authors and Indian literature, with well-rounded jury mining gems from the length and breadth of the country.

The bittersweet, funny and wise, Pyjamas are Forgiving, is a story of second chances, of losing yourself, and making yourself anew. It confirms Twinkle Khanna as one of our great storytellers, a writer who can immerse you in her world, create unforgettable characters and break your heart even as she makes you laugh out loud.
