      Description
      A novel about a boy who finds his family completely devastated by the outbreak of militancy in Kashmir valley. Its about his efforts to support his fathers efforts to eke out a living in the migrant camps of Jammu and to educate himself. In the inhospitable environment of Jammu, though he succeeds in earning a Masters degree in English, he sees no hope of settlement. He gets selected as a Lecturer in English in Nagaland University, where he falls in love in the midst of an overwhelming environment of political intrigue and racial conflict. The abrupt end of this love affair hits him hard. But as if this was not enough, he gets isolated in the campus politics that views him with suspicion for proximity to both the groups of faculty. The murder of the Dean draws him into a shell. Life begins to smile yet again when he completes his doctoral thesis and happens to travel together with his future wife from Nagaland to Delhi. The breakdown of the train by which they are travelling gives them the time to come close and by the time they are travelling back from home, the bond between them is already sealed.

      Want to know how Kashmir was spoiled?? Its the real story telling everything about that....

      Many authors wrote about the terrorism in Kashmir on the basis of the stories told by different people there. But this book is having something special, after reading it you can feel the real pain of a kashmiri who faced the terrorism there.

      I love this book. Thanks to Ravi Sir for explaining the story of their life in terror to the people of the whole world.

      Waiting for more editions :)

      Excellent Book on Kashmir Militancy

      This is an excellent book written by a intelligent Kashmiri Professor who has watched the events unfold in real time and who is himself a victim of Kashmir militancy/ terrorism. A must read for anyone who wants to understand the Kashmir culture. I just wish that Kashmir terms were explained so that the non Kashmiri too could understand what was being communicated (in the footnote).

      Overall an excellent book.

      Orphans of the storm - A compelling Reading

Author has chosen the words and sequence of events with deftness to create a plot of the events that arouse the readers curiosity to read each and every page of the novel. The flow of writing is so smooth that it does not seem author's debut novel. Overal...

      Resilience Of Individual after Terrorism

      The narrative is about the individual struggle after Terrorism has hit him and his community of peace loving Kashmiri Pandits by Jihadi Zealosits who want to establish Islamic Rule in Kashmir.

      The resilience against all odds and blossoming of Love characterizes the victory of Human Spirit despite all adversities.

      The story line keeps the people hooked to it till the end....
