If there is one news anchor whom I have liked more than Prannoy Roy on NDTV then it is Vikram Chandra. He has always ventured into new areas, started new concepts and programs and is a true leader in the world of TV news. When I came across this book “The Srinagar Conspiracy” written by him, I was really intrigued. The topic was to my liking and I knew the author as a great TV anchor. But I had no idea how good an author he will turn out to be. I was in for a big s

An amazing read from the hands of the stalwart himself. I remember interviewing Vikram Chandra during my school days and at that time he had just got this book published. When i went into his office it was all filled with photographs of terrorists and all kinds of magazines and cut outs related to the place.

Its one of the best pieces that enmeshes fiction with actual happenings..the way its written makes it very imaginable..and you can see it easily converted to a movie And the last page baffles

A nice novel based on the poltical situation of Kashmir. It traces the rise of militancy in Kashmir and its subsequent spread and ultimate decline. It tells about the problems faced by the people during those period.
Anyone interested in knowing about Kashmir but not wanting to pick a boring history book should read this novel.

it opened my eyes to things i had no grasp of. his writing style is journalistic but it works very well. very terrifying but well worth it. it will definitely change the way you look at things for a while.

Too Bollywood a book. While the depiction of Kashmir is beautiful and the problems in Kashmir is atleast made aware; the theme, the coincidences of the characters meeting, Yasmin dying; all the characters' potrayal are all too filmy and cliche

Recommended to anyone looking for a simplified narration of Kashmir's political history. Good storytelling

Loved it when I first read it at 13, was strangely obsessed with newspaper editorials, so to speak, then. Doubt if I'll feel the same way now. Extremely tragic, beautiful in parts.

The backdrop of Srinagar is well laid out.. and the story is also quite touching if not captivating.

I found this facinating. Reading it
gave me a much wider understanding of
the origin of the Kashmir conflict
and the ongoing issues between Pakistan
and India.
