The Saga of Satisar

Translated by Ranjana Kaul
Combining myth, legend, geography, history, and politics, The Saga of Satisar is the panoramic history of the Kashmiri Pandits. In it, award-winning Hindi writer Chandrakanta unspools a novel that spans two centuries, illustrating how Kashmiri lives have been transformed and the multicultural tradition disappeared in the face of military oppression.

Finding as its culprits militancy, state mismanagement, and the dirty play of politics, The Saga of Satisar is a passionate and heartfelt cry for a treasured land and way of life that is quickly disappearing. Chandrakanta writes beautifully of her beloved Kashmir, remarking that even as the colorful memories of her youth mingle with the fragrance of the cool breezes, these realities are fading, leaving her only a world of memories to dwell in.
