1947 - Present Kashmir

Since independence, India and Pakistan have been locked in conflict over Kashmir.


Literature of post-1947 is highly influenced by traumatizing events like Indo-Pak wars, militant insurgency, the exodus of Kashmiri pandits,

the clash of Indian troops and local Kashmiris, and Removal of articles 370 & 35A.


The wide variety of literature includes perspectives from India, Pakistan, Kashmiri Pandits, Muslims & International scholars which give a glimpse of the conflict that constructs this postcolonial emergency zone.
