The book is set in Kashmir before and after the 1990 insurgency and the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits. It is the story of three childhood friends, Bilal Ahanagar, Safeena Malik and Deewan Bhat. It is a beautiful story about love, friendship, revenge and atonement. I love how the Author has weaved these elements in the story.
It perfectly depicts the struggles of the common Kashmiri people, the confused loyalties between the good and bad. The friendship between the three characters is beautiful. The book teaches an important lesson, Humanity comes first before religion.
It is very rare that you come across books which tugs at your heartstrings and stays with you forever. This book is one of those. I urge everyone to read this book.
I wish I had more stars to rate this book, a 100 stars would also seem less.
