Description

About The Book

Being born and brought up in Kashmir, paradise on earth, nestled in the highest and most glorious mountain range on earth, the Himalayas is indeed a reward of destiny. The landlocked valley of Kashmir has a unique history of art, culture, spirituality, food, and lifestyle, which the author weaves masterfully into a rich tapestry with his life experiences. An account of his recent visit to Kashmir in July 2016, which he calls a sentimental journey- a pilgrimage to the homeland, is captivating. It engages the reader with an intensely human journey of the life of the author in Kashmir and beyond from 1930's to the present.

The author writes Urdu poetry under the pen name 'Hamdam'. His memories of Kashmir are suffused with nostalgia forming a skein of contrasting moods- from the halcyon days of the nineteen thirties to the turmoil unleashed by the partition, horrors of invasion, militancy, mass exodus of the minority community and the years of continued unrest that followed are covered in an evocative style.
