ABOUT THE BOOK:

The stories are based on Article 35A- true events. The story of millions of exploited, Indians, who in the last 71 years of independent India, have been deprived of all the rights and were compelled to live like slaves. She makes a humble submission that she is not a historian but, her stories focus on that aspect of the history of Jammu Kashmir, which has not been covered or written about in the literary world. Throughout 71 years of Independent India, the governments of J&K, under the guise of law, have ruled like tyrants and inflicted such atrocities on these communities which will shake people to their core. The stories reveal these blatant capricious governmental practices in the states of J&K over the last 70 years.

This book is a compilation of 8 short stories. All the stories have been written before the month of February 2019. It is a pleasant coincidence that by the time this book was published, Articles 370 and 35A have been abolished by the Indian government. Unfortunately, it will be years before any ground level justice prevails.
