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.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
