    To narrate the painful history of contemporary Kashmir is a challenge in and of itself, to do it through the form of a graphic novel is a feat Sajad s graphic novel is remarkable for its everydayness and universality as well as its staggering account of growing up in Kashmir during the armed rebellion Everything about this graphic novel is so well thought out, the use of the hangul endangered deer to represent Kashmiris, the way in which he narrates the political alongside the personal, an To narrate the painful history of contemporary Kashmir is a challenge in and of itself, to do it through the form of a graphic novel is a feat Sajad s graphic novel is remarkable for its everydayness and universality as well as its staggering account of growing up in Kashmir during the armed rebellion Everything about this graphic novel is so well thought out, the use of the hangul endangered deer to represent K...

    I come across so much stuff that s pseudo, pretentious, half assed, shallow, self involved, unexperienced, over intellectualised, over stylized, wannabe want to be claptrap This, is pure Lots of anger, lots of energy, and you might disagree...
