Kashmiri Short Stories

The short story emerged in the Kashmiri language in 1950 as a literary form distinct from the centuries, old folk tale, fable and parable. During the past forty-six years, it has been accepting the influence of all the experiments in the technique of the shorter fiction. The three distinguishable phases in Kashmiri short story faithfully reflect the changing life patterns of the Kashmiris and the related cultural framework. Through a spectrum of characters and events the twenty five short stories in this volume image the subjective reality of the individuals as well as the social ambience that circumscribes them.
