The Kashmir problem, today, evokes images of the militancy and fighting in the state. Forgotten, however, are the living victims of the militancy, the people forced to leave their homes in the valley in order to survive.
One of these communities is the Kashmiri Pandits, once an integral part of Kashmir, now living a scattered existence in makeshift camps in Jammu and Delhi. The apathy of government authorities and civil society towards the Pandits has been extraordinary. Kashmiri Pandits is a comprehensive account of the poignant history of the Kashmiri Pandits after 1947, based primarily on the papers presented at the Kashmiri Pandits Conference, organized by the Observer Research Foundation in September 2003.
