Curfewed Night A Frontline Memoir of Life Love and War in Kashmir

Curfewed night is a tale of unending brutality waged against the citizens of the Kashmir valley by the Indian army occupying the valley. During the 1990s when the author was a boy, Indian security Personnel brutally rape a young bride on her wedding night killing her brother in law. The author visits the lady in question and finds that her in laws regarded her as a bad omen on account of the death of their son. To top it all this poor woman’s first born child dies. However when the author visits them more recently he finds that though they are poor and life has been hard to both husband and wife they have tried to make a go of life. The author meets men who are impotent as a result of torture by the Indian forces and who are too ashamed to tell their family why they cannot marry. The author meets an old Kashmiri poet who had been a lecturer but has stopped this vocation after losing his wife and two adults sons in a grenade blast. A  Mujahed had been outside the house of the lecturer and his two adult sons had confronted the Mujahed because he intended to throw a grenade at a passing Indian patrol and the family did not want to be subject to Indian retribution. As the argument ensues their mother joins them but the Mujahed accidentally drops the safety pin from his grenade and all meet their end, leaving the lecturer a grieving widower.  The Kashmiris show immense fortitude by celebrating independence day of Pakistan while living under colonial occupation without independence. Hardback in dust wrapper. SIGNED BY AUTHOR.  Mint condition first edition 2010.
