    Description

    Basharat Peer was a teenager when the separatist movement exploded in Kashmir in 1989. Over the following years countless young men, fuelled by feelings of injustice, crossed over the Line of Control to train in Pakistani army camps. Peer was sent off to boarding school in Aligarh to keep out of trouble. He finished college and became a journalist in Delhi. But Kashmir -- angrier, more violent, more hopeless -- was never far away.

    In 2003 Peer, now a young journalist, left his job and returned to his homeland. Drawing a harrowing portrait of Kashmir and her people -- a mother forced to watch her son hold an exploding bomb, politicians living in refurbished torture chambers, picturesque villages riddled with landmines -- this is, above all, a story of what it really means to return home -- and the discovery that there may not be any redemption in it.

    Lyrical, spare, gut wrenching and intimate, ′Curfewed Night′ is a powerful and intensely moving debut, combining the insight of a journalist with the prose of a poet.

    ′A passionate and important book -- a brave and brilliant report from a conflict the world has chosen to ignore.′ - Salman Rushdie

    Great piece of work...Must read for all

    I read this book as soon as it was launched. Though i have read some books on Kashmir conflict but everyone lacks the honesty and the way of presentation. No book has ever dared to speak against the highhandedness of the Indian occupation and trouble caused by the Indian security forces. Basharat Peer has rightly portrayed the picture of Kashmir like never before witnessing the extreme conditions with his eyes. He has been a part of conflict zone and narrated the brutalities of security force...
