I was more engrossed in the following book more than anything else. Not merely in reading it but trying to find the best way of recreating it for ease of use in blogger.
This fascinating book is as candid and comprehensive as it is 'against the tide' and sadly incomplete. Somehow, somebody somewhere was able to preserve most of it for us to read today. It focusses on governance in AJK during the 1960s and was presumably written in the early 1970s.
It is unthinkable that it would have been published anywhere in AJK or Pakistan, on account of it's lucidity about how AJK was managed by the Pakistani State then. The structure and mono narrative imposed on us then hasn't really improved to date.
At some stage it seems to have been re-printed by Chand Press in Jammu and published by Nau Kashir Publications in Batamaloo, Srinagar. I wonder if anybody has a copy of the book across the LOC?
The following 8 pages (pages 18 to 25) form the contents of a chapter, namely (Mangla Dam - Kashmiris' murder)
If Kartarpur, why not Sharda Peeth too?
