-- The strikingly beautiful valley of Kashmir with its mountains, lakes and gardens has been described as a paradise on earth. The people of Kashmir, both Muslims and the Hindus (Pandits), have a peace-loving, non-violent nature. With a few exceptions, treacherous kings and sultans from outside have ruled Kashmir, exploited its people and destroyed their culture.
The book describes the life in Kashmir as lived by the author in nineteen fifties - a life of peace and tranquility with an unparalleled tolerance between the two communities. This is followed by description of the political events in the valley after the partition of India culminating in the advent of militancy and the eviction of the Pandits. The true accounts of the suffering of both the communities have been given. The opinions of the politicians, community leaders, intellectuals and the youth regarding the problem are recorded. Finally, a solution is proposed.
