Description
About the Book

Hasandin, a peasant-labourer, doubles as a horsewallah every summer when tourists flock to Kashmir. He hopes someday to save enough money to be able to afford a wedding feast for his son at the shrine of Baba Pamdin. After saying the morning namaz as an exception one day, he sets out with his three horses, nephew and son for the bus stand in Tangmarg, anticipating generous customers - like the Gora Sahibs - who will go on a trek to Gulmarg, Khilanmarg, Afrabat, and finally up to the frozen lake of Alpatthar. Instead, he meets Khanna Sahib, a cunning and stingy shopkeeper from Delhi, who squirms in discomfort before parting with a few annas to buy him tea, and then falsely accuses him of stealing his camera stand at the end of the trek. Published first in 1957 and told with an incisiveness characteristic of Upendra Nath Ashk, Sorrow of the Snows is a satirical yet compassionate account of the penury and deprivation that began setting in in Kashmir after Independence. It is also the larger story of every farmer in India who rests the responsibility of his happiness and sorrows on God's shoulders.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
