Summary

•A socio-political thriller set in Kashmir from 1990 to 2013
•A coming-of-age novel that depicts the lives of three children and the choices destiny forces them to make
•A multi-layered narrative that highlights different points of view - Kashmiri Pandits exiled from their homes, young directionless militants, duty-bound army officers and innocent civilians who become collateral damage

The Tree with a Thousand Apples is a universal story of cultures, belongingness, revenge and atonement. A socio-political thriller set in the troubled Indian region of Kashmir, during the years 1990 to 2013, it depicts how the lives of three innocent children are shattered during an insurgent night, and what happens 20 years later when their paths cross again. This narrative, while local to the Kashmir Valley, reflects a universal truth: that lives of innocent people are caught in the crossfire of conflict zones across the world. The novel depicts the paradise that Kashmir once was, shows the ideological conflict zone it has become, and explores the question of 'where next?', both for the land and its people. The stylized layered format, fast-paced narration and suspenseful storytelling makes for a powerful, gripping read.
