The Chronicles of Kashmir
An insight into many untold facts describing the position of Kashmiri Pandits since the pre-independence era, the subsequent developments that shaped the socio - cultural and political environment in J&K, the sowing of the seeds of terrorism much before they showed up and the factors that led to the world’s largest mass exodus of people in their own country, this biography chronicles historic events witnessed and led by Pandit Amarnath Vaishnavi dating back to 1947 up to the year 2012.
Amarnath Vaishnavi was a social activist at the grass root and was at the helm of various historic events pertaining to Kashmiri Pandits that shaped history and influenced the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. His negotiations with the government led to the rehabilitation of displaced Kashmiri Pandits who lost their homes during their mass exodus from Kashmir in 1990.
A man who was so influential was never tempted to accumulate wealth or use power to help himself or his close family members. He lived a down to earth life in one of the Kashmiri refugee colonies in Jammu.
He was honoured with the title, “Father of the Kashmiri Pandit Community.”
