Author Suresh K. Goswami takes inspiration from the real-life struggles of Kashmiris fighting for their independence in his new novel, “Burning Sapphires” (published by Partridge India).

Set in the Valley of Kashmir, “Burning Sapphires” focuses on the adventures of Shahzadi Ghulab Sahib, a young girl who demonstrates extraordinary vision and strength through her will to survive and overcome the unimaginable atrocities committed against her family and her community.

After navigating a maze of grueling, fateful events, Shahzadi Ghulab Sahib matures into a woman of great knowledge, substance and experience. She takes charge of millions of Kashmiri Muslims trapped in the Valley of Kashmir and 500,000 displaced Kashmiri pandits living as refugees in their own country.

With Shahzadi Ghulab Sahib emerging as a modern-day messiah, millions of Kashmiris are led toward a life of contentment, dignity and pride.

An excerpt from “Burning Sapphires”:

“A dark melancholy had befallen the village. They mourned not so much for poor Badru but for the miserable destiny they knew would soon dawn upon them from the depths of the dark forest, where no one dared to venture any more. It was home to the mysterious demons that walked and danced, playing with their guns and spitting fury where ever they went.”
