    1. Finally, a book to wave in front of (and maybe throw at) people who make the most bigoted statements and have unnatural and callous opinions on what's happening in Kashmir, people either misinformed or apathetic or just generally narrow-minded. A significant portion of them are just bigoted, in my opinion, I think that nobody is really stupid, but are only stupid when not being so results in a conclusion they are not happy with. Everybody should read this book, especially people who live in Indi [...]

    2. This was compelling for me as I was just in Srinagar, Kashmir for a week and as an American there, this collection explained so many feelings I picked up on but could not describe or even understand about the energy and the feeling of the place. Dairy of a Summer by Suvir Kaul and also The Islamism Bogey In Kashmir by Najeeb Mubarki gave me real insight and perspective about what Kashmir's having been going through for over 20 years. It's a mix of articles published from various magazines and ne [...]

    3. Must-read for the uninformed, ill-informed and misinformed chunk of Indians. Reflective, intriguing and eye-opening, this book brings you Kashmir and Kashmiris in a new light.

    4. Excellent collection of articles from a number of prominent academics, activists, and journalists. Based primarily on the events of the summer of 2010, but also sheds light on the broader context of the resistance.

    5. While the book started well, the ending was unreadable & I left reading the book 50pages before the end. It contained outright lies. "No Muslim has been ever in powerful and sensitive location". My ass. APJ Abdul Kalam was the commander of Army,Navy & Air Force. Yeah, the entire country of India is repressing Muslims everywhere because we are arrogant Hindus. While this thing struck me off from the course of reading the book, it does put forward some interesting point of views that the r [...]

    6. An honest account of the valley - marking some crucially important voices that have remained unheard and unrecorded for a very very long time.The book got me hooked immediately - not just because it comes edited from a filmmaker I personally revere, but for its interesting and eclectic mix of writings, moorings as well as profound arguments raised by some very important writers of our times. Some of the writings such as 'How I became stone-pelter for a day' and 'Kashmir's Abu Ghraib?' among the [...]
