    Description

    Our Moon has Blood Clots is a detailed memoir of the violent ethnic cleansing of the Kashmiri Pandit community written by Rahul Pandita.

    Summary of the Book

    Rahul Pandita and his family were forced to leave their home in Srinagar in 1990. Kashmiri Pandits, they were part of the minority in Kashmir, and the Islamic militants threatened their very lives. In this book he reveals how hundreds of people were tortured and cast out of their homes. About 3,50,000 Kashmiri Pandits were forced out of the state, and into a life of exile in their own nation. In a deeply personal and powerful story of history, home and ultimately, loss, Rahul Pandita tells a tale that has been crying to be told.

    Our moon has blood clots.... Must Read....... Must Read

    This book took me back to the times of the exodus... I remember the days vividly till date. Being 8 years of age at that time I couldn't understand that my winter vacations at school would be my last adieu there. This well charted manuscript written in a lucid and crystal clear manner sheds the profane mannerism of the majority community over there. I was shaken and had a chill running down my spine while I read page after page. The horrific atmosphere prevalent that time was being recreated ...

    An honest and savage account

    This is a savage, dead-on-honest account of an "uncool", unfashionable" episode of modern India, which hasn't got any sort of recognition from any corner. We talk about minorities, their status in the country, how to improve their lives blah, blah, blah, but never spare a thought for the minority Hindu pandits living in J&K. This book is a resounding slap in the face of this hypocrisy. As Mr. Ramachandra Guha rightly pointed out, "Every paragraph of this compelling memoir rings deeply true".

    Well Documented events of Author's life

    If this account of the events of the author’s life is read by every secularist, they would understand what it means to be a secularist. Best quote of the book “Major Saab, I lost my home, not my Humanity". Being human is what matters in this world and I could foresee it will be a rare virtue to be seen in the homosapiens in the coming days.

    I admire the writer for his bold way to say that they invaded us.

    I pity the sad state of affairs in JK. All we can hope is that India regains the lan...

    Classy product

    The memoir of a tragedy is perhaps one of the hardest pieces of literature to write because unless the author is able to transport the reader, by putting him into his own shoes, right into the midst of each and every event that transpired, the reader becomes disconnected to the author's tale and thus, the book loses its meaning.
    Mr. Pandita has, through his sheer literary prowess, managed to transport me into a Kashmir that he yearns for, a Kashmir that has betrayed his and his community's sa...

    Mind-blowing purchase

    It is one of the best book which an individual must read in his whole time .
    The atrocities and the reality pictured by Rahul Pandita is so to the point that an individual may get goosebumps after watching the reality that the Kashmiri Pandits have faced and the whole detailed refugee problem are been described up to the point.
    His remarkable book is worth recommendation hence, it would strongly recommend this book!
    The pages are so strong one cannot stop reading!

    Must read book

    I was in 10th standard when I met one Kashmiri family settled in Pune. The old lady told me what happened to them and she was like my grandmother. I just took it lightly but thats the real reason to read this book. I liked it. The intimate writing of Rahul P which underline the horrors he faced are necessary to understand lot of things. Kashmir complex politics, India's internal security challenges etc.

    Facts and story we all must read and know! MUST!!

    Rahul has shown great courage and bigheartedness, in my personal belief, to tell us what he and his family went through. It is not a report about an incident or mass exile! It is indeed his story and the story of many innocent people.

    Particularly the facts and relation to the past event in the form of interactive writing that is something to look out from this very well researched book.

    If you believe in taking a bird's eye view of the topic before deciding, this is the book for you.Go ...

    A must read

    I read this book right after reading one about Iran, by an author in exile in the US.....it provided insight, understanding and sensitivity toward all those who have been displaced....from my grand parents and family to countless others who were uprooted over night and had to move on without a backward glance....the difference between the tragedy and irreplaceable loss during and after the partition to what has happened to the Kashmiri pandits is that we have an opportunity to make amends. I ...

    The Never Ending Exile.

    First of all : Flipkart has a wonderful service. Got this book withing single day of placing the order. The book was nicely packed. No chance that even any corner of your book will be folded/weared off.

    The book is written in a simple language and has a good standard of vocabulary used. Mr. Pandita has remembered even the small details so well and has been successful to help a reader visualise each and every line in the book. You'll be hooked to the book from the starting page till the end. ...
