fall apart, the centre cannot hold" - W. B. Yeats
Kashmir - the gaping
wound, oozing blood,
tears, narrating stories
of war, strife,
communal hatred and the
of Kashmiryat assumes its real meaning in the film. The film reveals the real
story of Kashmir. It is a cry of mourning, the wail of a widow, the dumb shriek
of a motherless child.
The iron curtain has
finally been lifted and a harsh reality lurks in front of us like a naked
corpse. The film captures the socio-political reality of contemporary Kashmir
and debates the causes of eradication of the ancient cultural heritage of this
mini diverse civilisation. It also depicts Kashmir bereft of her original
children - the Pandits.
The flight of
migratory and wounded birds is the main motif in the film.
It is time someone
narrated their tale. Hence, this film.
The film is based on the
documented account of the actual events which occurred in Kashmir between 1989
and January 1998.
