Description

About the Book

This is the story of six sisters set against the backdrop of the beautiful valley of Kashmir. Daughters of Prem Nath Kohli, Manager Private Estates to Maharaja Hari Singh of Kashmir and an obsessive naturalist and photographer, the Kohli sisters were brought up in an orthodox society by a fiercely progressive father. The book follows the life of the sisters, through their days of carefree innocence, economic ups and downs and their love and loss, as seen through the ever-curious eyes of their youngest sister, Ginni.

The book traces the journey of the 'Kohli sisters' through three major political upheavals — Indian Independence and the Partition of India, the invasion by Kabaili raiders in 1947 and finally, terrorism in the 1990s that was the cause of the family's final parting from their roots in the Valley. This book spans seven decades of their love and longing for Kashmir, against the political backdrop of the times.

About the Author

Kiran Narain nee Kohli grew up in Kashmir as the youngest daughter of Prem Nath Kohli, forrestor and pioneering botanist of Kashmir and Manager Private Estates to H.R.H. Maharaja Hari Singh of Kashmir. Growing up in a household of six sisters in Kashmir, Kiran's early years were spent in Baramulla until the Kabaili attack of 1947 and then Srinagar. She taught English at the Women's College in Srinagar and moved to Calcutta after her marriage in 1965 to an officer of the Indian Revenue Services. She continued her association with Kashmir through the years, visiting her father's home each year and lived again in the state, once her husband was posted as Commissioner Income Tax with J&K under his jurisdiction from 1970 to 1985. She served as a social worker and was nominated as a Member of the Delhi Consumer's Forum in the 1990s. She has continued writing as a free lance journalist for various newspapers and magazines and until recently was a columnist for The Tribune.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
