    I feel so very sad for Adil – I wish he could move on and build his own life but then wonder if that will be fair to the memory of Maqbool and his other family members who dreamt the impossible dream of an indepedent Kashmir. Kashmir will remain a Himalayan tragedy in our life times.

    This is a beautifully written piece. You have captured the haunting, tragic nature of Kashmir’s political history as lived out by Maqbool Bhat’s family, especially his nephew. Adil’s connection to the house and why he chooses to stay there is the strongest and most touching aspect of your article. Well done and please keep writing!
