I started thinking of it when I was in college, and over the years, I wrote whatever I could remember. Many times I gave up. I had to wade through periods of darkness. But the images stayed with me. It was a wound I kept on touching so that it remains festering.
In the last few years, I became angrier at the way our story was ignored by the media. When academics and filmmakers spoke about Kashmir, they either chose to bypass the story of Kashmiri Pandits or lied through their teeth about the circumstances that led to our exodus.
How do you write objectively about a young man who was dragged out of a bus and shot dead? I guess the only objective way to writing is to write truthfully, without exaggeration, but also not unnecessarily mellow it down.
Later this month, you are scheduled to speak about the book at a few universities in the US. What issues do you plan to address? It has generated a lot of interest there as well, especially at a time when nations all across are grappling with the issue of Islamist extremism.
I think the story of Kashmiri Pandits has lessons for the international community. It must realise and understand how we were brutalised and forced into permanent exile from a land where our ancestors had lived for thousands of years.
What was the feedback you received for the book? Has it helped more Kashmiri Pandits come forward to share their stories? The feedback has been overwhelming. They are writing to me to say that they never knew this side of the story. Also, the response from my own community has been overwhelming. I am glad youngsters are reading it. I am hoping more people will come forward and tell their stories.
