October 1947 Wails of Fallen Autumn Leaves

Author Name: Ankush Sharma | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Amidst the Poonch rebellion in October 1947 and the ensuing tribal invasion that shook the foundations of the erstwhile princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, three young souls found themselves entwined in the unfolding tragedy. Tulsi, a 17-year-old boy torn from his village, grapples with betrayal, loss, and the brutal demise of his loved ones. Laajo, a mere seven-year-old girl, braves chilling isolation, while Hriday, a 10-year-old boy, stands as the lone survivor of a village laid to waste. Their destinies collide on a harrowing journey of survival, navigating treacherous landscapes that inscribe a new and uncertain chapter in their lives. Will their determination and resilience be enough to wrest their lives from the clutches of this massacre, or will they fade into obscurity, joining the ranks of the countless others who have vanished without a trace?

Ankush Sharma

Ankush Sharma, an Engineer turned Historian, lives in the small town of Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir. His primary research interest is centred on the displacement, rehabilitation, and integration of individuals who were uprooted from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) during the 1947 tribal invasion. Additionally, he delves into diverse subjects, including culture, heritage, tourism, and social issues, notably drug abuse. His written works have gained acknowledgement through publication in various newspapers and academic journals. Beyond his academic pursuits, he is passionate about poetry, creative writing, and storytelling. Furthermore, he is interested in spirituality, plantation, and social service.

Inspired by the personal experiences of his family and community during the tribal invasion, Ankush has developed a profound interest in their painful stories, motivating him to write a book that reflects the enduring mark left on his soul.
