From the author of My Seditious Heart and The Ministry Of Utmost Happiness, comes a new and pressing dispatch from the heart of the crowd and the solitude of a writer's desk. The chant of Azadi!--Urdu for "Freedom!"--is the slogan of the freedom struggle in Kasmir against what Kasmirris see as the Indian Occupation. Ironically it has also become the chant of millions on the streets of India against the project of Hindu Nationalism. What lies between these two calls for Freedom? A chasm or a bridge?
