Description:
With the sound of gushing water, the aroma of pine trees, the vibrancy of saffron, the rise of azan, and an unfathomable calling, Kashmir surprises everyone. It breathes within its locals and visitors alike, with a pulse that they can sense, a heartbeat they can feel, and an expression they can personify.

In October 1947, Kashmir’s political feature came to head when Maharaja Hari Singh signed the instrument of Accession to India. Since then, Kashmir has been subject to decades of instability along with years of battling with insurgency, while it continues on its long walk to normalcy.

Kashmir: A journey through history by Garry Weare appeals to the armchair traveller and history buff alike. Neither academic,nor just a simple history guide, the book describes how Kashmir, reigned by snow-capped peaks, has attracted pilgrims and Sufis, armies and traders, travelers and adventurers over the centuries.
