ABOUT THIS BOOK

Jaffna Street is a an acutely observed and felt chronicle of the author’s beloved Srinagar City and its struggle to survive in the face of unremitting violence, as seen through the prism of lives of its many denizens. It is also an outcome of author’s dispassionate effort to understand the dehumanizing times that he was unwittingly condemned to live in.

Jaffna Street was borne out of the author’s first person explorations into the human dimension of this tragedy.
