Editorial Reviews

Review

'the definitive end to the story, which has remained unresolved for seventeen years...Levy and Scott-Clark have dared to follow the pitiless logic of a very dirty war, and have shown where it can lead...a gripping and often emotional read.' Literary Review 'a meticulous account...Like a real-life version of The Beach by Alex Garland' Sunday Telegraph

"Kashmir was comprised of secrets, buried so deeply they might never come to the surface" - 'Cath' in The Meadow

Judging from the two dozen odd reviews that it has garnered so far, The Meadow by the British journalists, Adrian Levy & Cathy Scott-Clark, is quite contentious despite impressive evidence of the very thorough research which has gone into its making. My review, however, is different from other such assessments in one significant way: the events narrated in the book simply happened around me.

Growing up in the shadows of conflict, of guns wielded by both militants and armed forces, we in Kashmir have witnessed many confusing narratives that just 'happened' but which are now imprinted in our minds, seemingly forever. Everything in 1990s Kashmir was, as I remember it iteratively, brought to a standstill each day. Our lives as young boys were ruled by a primary goal: to save ourselves and to live just for one more day. While boys of our age in other parts of the country were aiming for productive careers in the engineering, medical and civil services and concentrating on their studies, our lives were part of another narrative - knotted, twisted and often grotesque, despite the shimmering beauty of the landscape we inhabited.

In July 1995, after our XI standard biology lecture, a seventeen-year-old boy told us a strange story before the news actually broke in the media. It was the tale of the kidnapping of six foreigners from the upper ranges of Pahalgam valley. How did this boy know of this event even before the fiery media disclosures? He did not tell us and we did not ask - but the dramatic kidnapping episode soon became the talk of the whole town.

This was a very decent and at times quite moving journalistic account.

At times I did think that it was overlong and that the authors were perhaps using guess work in describing people's reaction. However for the most part it seemed quite convincing and accurate.

Maybe the events described in this book were not as influential on a global scale as the author suggests. However they do a good job in conveying the personal tragedy and horror.

Journalists often make excellent writers of history and the Meadow is one such example. Insightful and balanced investigation into the hostage taking.
