Among Hindustan Times’ Top Ten “most thought-provoking and intellectually satisfying books” of 2013.

Praise For The Book:

Of Occupation and Resistance: Writings from Kashmir“Profound and poignant, this compilation is a defiant attempt at remembering in a Valley where setting down the past – in writing, or photographs, in lyrics or on a canvas, even whispered over a burning hearth while all around you are sipping tea – is the only insurance that what has gone before will always be known. So I raise my cup: Here’s to not forgetting.” – Adrian Levy, British journalist and author

“A remarkable book.” – Hindustan Times

“…gripping narratives from a troubled Kashmir…The book may create uncomfortable ripples in you, but it’s a way to ensure that Kashmir, and its people, are not left simmering on the backburner.” – Mail Today

“…highlights the different aspects of the Kashmir conflict.” – The Hindu

“…helps us to rethink and redefine both the political unconscious and the aesthetic currents around the Kashmiri ‘occupation’ and its infinite resistance.” – Hardnews

“…tells the stories of a strife-torn region […], surveys the valley’s private and public distresses since 1988.” – Live Mint

“This book might not change the course of events, but it will surely arouse emotions of love, longing and belonging.” – Indo-Asian News

“…tells the raw story of Kashmir […] the book is an important addition to contemporary Kashmir literature.” – Greater Kashmir

“…sets a new trend of narrative and has a potential to diminish the limitless polemics channelised on Kashmir…” – Newsyaps
