About The Book:
The history of Kashmir
is a sad story,’
wrote Josef Korbel
in 1954. Since
then nothing has
changed, In fact, it
has become sadder.
With more agonizing
and brutal
stories added to it
with every passing
year, it is now one
of the most scarlet
histories of the subcontinent.
In the contemporary
history of
this salubrious
land that for centuries
has been waxing even most prosaic lyrical, there
are many important watersheds. For killing of one
hundred sixteen school children in the age group of
eight to twenty one the year 2010 will be part of major
Kashmir narrative for centuries to come. The New
York Times described the massive protests sparked
after the killing of youth by men in uniform as ‘second
intifada.’ Thousands of youth all over Kashmir for
months converged on the streets raising full throat
slogans for “azadi” and resorted to fighting batons and
bullets with stones. The protest rallies and ding-dong
battles between the troops and the youth attracted
over two thousands columns and editorials in the
international media. For the youth bidding adieu
to guns and resorting to the most primitive weapon
stones these protests have been a paradigm shift from
“armed struggle” to the people’s uprising.
