The stories are all based on the author's personal experiences, and her intimate understanding of what it means to be a Kashmiri-speaking native. They cover the period from the late 19th century to the present day. None of the available political treatises have ever delved deeply into the sociological and the human sides of living in the valley. The author's intimate insights into Kashmiri society, its evolution in an enticing, remote valley, and how her people dealt with Kashmir's bitter and tempestuous history, are sprinkled liberally across the book. 9789354223273
