Since the author has served in the Kashmir valley for about five years, he has gone through the conflicts of emotions, where his empathy was with average Kashmiri sufferings but his duties were with the Army. The eyewitness incidents narrated in the book highlight the sufferings and loss of both sides – the civilian population as well as soldiers and their families. The book is an account of the senseless devastations, encounters, killings, firing, cries, shrieks and detention of youth, many found to be innocent later. It is remembrance of the interrogations, the chest beating mothers, hair plucking fathers and missed opportunities of education and growth, pitiable conditions of Kashmiri s Hindus in the refugee camps, etc. It is a humble effort to bring you closest to `the truth . This book is a wish that all above ends soon so that none of eyes are wet, while remembering Kashmir.
