Kashmir: The Loss of Innocence

 
Kiran Kohli Narain (Author)
Synopsis

This is the story of six sisters set against the backdrop of the beautiful valley of Kashmir. Daughters of Prem Nath Kohli, Manager Private Estates to Maharaja Hari Singh of Kashmir and an obsessive naturalist and photographer, the Kohli sisters were brought up in an orthodox society by a fiercely progressive father. The book follows the life of the sisters, through their days of carefree innocence, economic ups and downs and their love and loss, as seen through the ever-curious eyes of their youngest sister, Ginni.

The book traces the journey of the 'Kohli sisters' through three major political upheavals — Indian Independence and the Partition of India, the invasion by Kabaili raiders in 1947 and finally, terrorism in the 1990s that was the cause of the family's final parting from their roots in the Valley. This book spans seven decades of their love and longing for Kashmir, against the political backdrop of the times.
