On 5 August 2019, Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which gave Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) special status, was abrogated. J&K was now a union territory.

This landmark event in the history of Kashmir was preceded by a series of political and social events over the seven decades since Independence. What forces led to the abrogation? What were its consequences on the people of J&K? What was their reaction to it? And most importantly, what does the future hold?

Written by veteran journalist Jitendra Dixit, Valley of Red Snow seeks to answer these questions and presents an unprejudiced, non-judgmental and comprehensive story of how Kashmir is changing after one of the biggest government decisions in the history of independent India.

This book narrates the events from the years preceding the historic event, the immediate situation in Kashmir at the time of the abrogation and presents voices of various stakeholders in the Valley with extensive interviews. It chronicles the momentous events in the Valley in the last decade as witnessed by the author from ground zero and others insights on the ‘New Kashmir’.

A must-read for those interested in the future of J&K.
