“Kashmirnama”, written in Bengali, is based on the experiences of the author on a recent fact-finding visit to the Kashmir valley just after the upsurge in the struggle of the Kashmiri people following the encounter death of Burhan Wani in 2016 and the severe state repression let loose on them. The author creates pen pictures of the everyday lives of Kashmiri people in the backdrop of their long-standing fight for “azaadi”, and puts it in the context of the history of Kashmir.

The author is a veteran activist for democratic rights and for the release of political prisoners.
