Afghanistan in Kashmir & other stories are based on some real life experiences of the author in Kashmir. While many characters in these stories represent real persons in author’s life, a few have been created around the narration of some real life incidents. Any resemblance of these fictional characters with any actual person (s), dead or alive, is purely coincidental and un-intentional. What prompted the author to write these stories was the question “Nanu, but why did you have to leave Kashmir? And, what are you doing here in Bengaluru, now?” asked one day by his America born teenage granddaughter during one of her summer break stays with her grandparents at Bengaluru. The dialogue between her and the author that led to this question is narrated as a story Our Family Album in the Prologue of the book.
