9788189013721: Street in Srinagar

Srinagar, capital city of the famed paradise on earth, Kashmir. Ailan gali, a deep, dark narrow lane that lies at its heart, where houses stand on a fingerwidth of space and lean crookedly against each other, so deep, so narrow, so closely connected that even thieves do not dare enter. Yet people live and love here, they cling on their old ways, even as younsters strain to leave, to breathe the air of the outside world. This funny, poignant story of a Kashmir as yet untouched by violence-with its shadow looming at the edges-is a classic of Hindu literature, available for the first time in English.

Book Description Kali for Women. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, A Street in Srinagar, Chandrakanta, Manisha Chaudhry, Srinagar, capital city of the famed 'paradise on earth', Kashmir. Ailan Gali, a deep, dark narrow lane that lies at its heart, where houses stand on a finger's width of space and lean crookedly against each other, so deep, so narrow, so closely connected that even thieves do not dare enter. Yet people live and love here, they cling on to their old ways, they share stories and food, joys and sorrows, sufficient unto themselves. But the outside world beckons, youngsters begin to leave, and slowly change makes its way into Ailan Gali only to find its hitherto hidden mirror-image - the change that has insidiously been working its way into the lives of those who are the gali's permanent residents. This funny, poignant, evocative story of a Kashmir as yet untouched by violence - but with its shadows looming at the edges - is a classic of Hindi literature, available in English translation for the first time.
