"A Long Dream of Home: The Persecution, Exodus and Exile of Kashmiri Pandits," - a collection of first hand narratives of never told before stories by several generations of those evicted from their own state- was unveiled here last evening.
At the launch, former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Farooq Abdullah said, "Don't wait till the last guns stop firing. Come home!".
The Kashmiri Pandits were driven out of their homeland in 1990 to live in exile and 26 years since then governments at both central and state levels have changed, and myriad policies have also been formulated but "the rhetoric remains unchanged", said Varad Sharma, who along with Siddharth Gigoo edited the tome published by Bloomsbury.
