Description
About the Book

SriNagar, Capital city of the famed paradise on earth, Kashmir, Ailan Gali, a deep, dark narrow lane that lies at its heart, where houses stand on a finger’s width of space and lea crookedly against each other, so deep, so narrow, so closely connected that even thieves do not dare enter. Yet people live and love here, they cling onto their old ways, they share stories and food, joys and sorrows, sufficient unto themselves.

But the outside world beckons, youngsters begin to leave, and slowly change makes its way into Ailan Gali only to find it’s hitherto hidden mirror image- the change that has insidiously been working its way into the lives of those who are the gali’s permanent residents.

This funny, poignant, evocative story of a Kahmir as yet untouched by violence- but with its shadows looming at the edges- is a classic, of /hindi lliterature, available in English translation for first time.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
