Description

April 2022: India has walked out of Kashmir and made Kashmir FREE.

Kashmir finally has what its stone pelting mobs have apparently been demanding for such a long time.

FREEDOM. Now what?

What does Hasina Ittoo, its chief minister “promoted overnight” as prime minister, do? Beg India for a Bhutan like status with the Indian Army defending it; or request Pakistan for a similar status as that of its so-called region of “Azad Kashmir”?

What does India do: treat Kashmir like Bhutan or Nepal with free trade and visa-free movement of people or treat it like Pakistan with massive restrictions on everything imaginable?

And how do the Kashmiris carry on with their daily lives? Where from do they get their food supplies, electricity, petroleum products, medicines, car parts, building material, and every such item of daily use? Which airline and mobile companies now service them? Which currency do they use now: Indian, Pakistani, or both? Who pays now for the bloated bureaucracy of Kashmir? Pakistan?

Does Shehla Kaloo, the firebrand Kashmiri feminist, succeed in turning Kashmir in to a neutral but prosperous Switzerland? Or, does she yield to popular sentiments in favour of a Sharia-governed Islamist society?

KASHMIR THINKS IT’S FREE is that fictional, what-if peep in to a not-too-distant future when Kashmir attains freedom from India.

Spread over 47 chapters, this astoundingly realistic and edge-of-the-seat politico-bureaucratic thriller will grip you by the throat and shake you to the core when you finish its almost 70,000-words of pure adrenaline rush.

As an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer of the 1979 batch of the Jammu and Kashmir cadre, who has served the nooks and crannies of J&K for over 37 years, lead author Arun Kumar believes he’s more than qualified to do justice to this thrilling plot. Co-author Prasenjeet Kumar brings his formidable experience of writing 30 books (of which 60 titles are now translated in to six international languages) to tighten up the story and to bring out its human and social dimensions.
