Quiet Flows the River Jhelum: A Compelling Narrative on the History of the Kashmir Dispute

 
Jajabor (Author) Sujit Kumar Das (Translator)
Synopsis

Quiet Flows the River Jhelum (Jhelum Nodir Tirey) recounts the thrilling tale of how the erstwhile princely state of Jammu & Kashmir acceded to India, under the threat of invasion by Pakistan-supported troops. The role of leaders and administrators such as Lord Mountbatten, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, and Maharaja Hari Singh, the last King of Jammu and Kashmir, as well as the political, military, and social issues of the time are lucidly narrated by the author. Highlighting the heroism of brave warriors, such as Lt. Col. Ranjit Rai, Brigadier L.P. Sen, Brigadier Osman, and Major Somnath Sharma, the author describes how the Indian Army and Air Force were able to thwart the Pakistani invasion of 1947–48. This book takes you back to a tumultuous time in modern Indian history and sheds light on the causes of the Kashmir issue. Succinctly depicting political manoeuvring, palace intrigue, and valiant battle tactics, the critically acclaimed Bengali original is presented to a wider audience in this contemporary English translation.
