The story of Kashmiri Pandits mass exodus from their motherland has been dealt with by the media as a political story, never has it been as fascinatingly written from the point of view of the Pandits who were made to abandon their homeland by force. It is a wonderful story of a human being’s courageous journey painted on a spectacular canvas of emotions.”
