Tears of Jhelum

Tears of Jhelum

Author(s): Anita Krishan

Location(s): Kashmir

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Early 90s

Kashmir has long seen years of strife and turmoil, and Wali Mohammad Khan has been a silent witness to it all.The violence that terrorism unleashed in the valley was every bit as senseless as the men who propagated it with manic intensity, but Wali managed to create a seemingly normal life for himself and his family, naively believing that the madness beyond would never touch him or the ones he loved.

But all illusions are fragile, and Wali’s get shattered when ghost from his past returns to bring the violence and the insanity of terrorism right into his home, threatening everything and everyone he holds dear in his life.

‘Tears of Jhelum’ is a sensitive and poignant narrative of one of the victims of terrorism, whose heartbreaking stories are otherwise lost forever behind the smokescreen of apathy and indifference.
