About the Book


Set against the backdrop of a conflict-ridden Kashmir valley and spanning twenty-three years of unfinished love and longing, pain and sublimation, this is a story of refracted love between ambitious and competent Sudarshan and quiet and tender Farooq, two human souls who bleed and cry together but on two different notes.

For tormented Sudarshan, love is about being unambiguous in its proclamations, aggressively possessive; for helpless Farooq, it is about stepping back, letting go, nurturing, caring, attending, renouncing. The personal currents of a turbulent relationship and the political dynamics of Kashmir cross-cut and fuse in this political love story.
