Kashmir has seen long years of strife and turmoil and Wali Mohammad Khan has been a silent witness to it all. The violence that terrorism unleashed in the Valley was every bit as senseless as the men who propagated it with manic intensity, but Wali managed to create a seemingly normal life for himself and his family within the protective walls of his home, naïvely believing that the madness beyond would never touch them. But Wali's illusions get shattered when a ghost from his past returns to bring the insanity of terrorism right into his home, threatening everything he holds dear. Tears of Jhelum lays bare before us, the story of one of those victims of terrorism, whose heartbreaking stories are otherwise lost forever behind the smokescreen of apathy and indifference.

Born in Shimla in 1955, Anita Krishan spent twenty-two years of her early life in this pristine Himalayan town, completing her education in 1976 with a Master’s degree in English Literature from Himachal University. Enriching the lives of countless youngsters as an English teacher, Anita has written and directed plays, penned down novels, stories, and poems.

Her endeavour to affect a shift in human outlook with her unique perspective towards storytelling is ostensible in her writings. Anita is also a senior columnist with the Indian Economist. She has extensively travelled through the world, observing and absorbing the multiplicity of human ethos and cultures everywhere. At present, she lives in Delhi, NCR, with her family.
