Contemporary Kashmiri Short Stories
Description
About the Book

Kashmiri short story was born with the Progressive Movement in Kashmir and it accepted the standards and values dictated by the Movement unquestioningly. Nationalism and the desire for reaching out to people inspired most of the writers to switch over to Kashmiri, even though they had started writing in Urdu. Dinanath Nadim's Javabi Card (Reply-card) and Sommath Autshi's Yeli Phol Gash (When there was light) are the first two short stories written in Kashmiri.

The early sixties marked the down of the modern Kashmiri short story. The short story writer today is trying to handle the changing values and uncertainties of his environment by bringing a fresh perspective to them and breaking free from the shackles of conventionality.

The seventeen stories presented in this volume explorer inner realities through unconventional means breaking free from stereotypes.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
