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.
