Inform, Amuse and Provoke - Khushwant Singh

A little while ago, I was reading "Khushwantnama - The Lessons of My Life" by Khushwant Singh.

In the chapter "Journalism Then and Now", Khushwant Singh writes -

I have never made any distinctions between Journalism and literature. They're both about communication. I had no problems writing about politics because I had opinions and I wasn't scared to air them.
I was full of self-confidence and belief in my three-pronged formula of inform, amuse, provoke.
The above 3 words are very important for any writer. A writer's writing should be to inform his readers, amuse them and provoke them to think after they have finished reading.
