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.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
