An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



Comments from Critics

'Autumn Leaves: Kashmiri Reminiscences is the autobiography of Ram Nath Kak. Set against the changing times of Kashmir .... this book provides a rare glimpse into a relatively unknown segment of modern history.... Ram Nath Kak entices the reader with his candid writing style into a mélange of personal and public experience as he moves from one station of life to the next, never failing to introduce an intriguing array of authentic characters along the way.... This book will be rewarding to students of modern history and religion....'

 '. . . a lovely book . . . would be of great interest to historians of religions....'

 'I trust this autobiography will get the wide circulation it so richly deserves. For it conveys in a way no formal work of scholarship can convey, both the cultural quality of Kashmir and the tragedy which has overtaken it of late. Yet the spirit of the Kashmiri people and their extraordinary ability to refashion lives of dignity and creativity for themselves comes across even more powerfully than the tragedy which has overtaken this beautiful valley in Shri Kak's account of his life and times.'
