Inside this Book – I gazed westward from the top of the hill. The cottage where Inspector Masoodi’s son had recently moved his father stood in the thin clearing by the lake. Its old wooden walls painted over in a dark shade of green, the cottage had two narrow slits for the windows in the front. Between them, a door clung to a feeble frame on rusting metal hinges – a door that I could break with a single blow of my axe. I had come to see the cowherd, Gulzar, who reared my master’s cows along with the rest of his herd. He was a thin boy of sixteen with a soft face bursting with a new beard and pimples. Whatever the season, he never took off his long woollen pheran. Although he always carried a stout staff, I had rarely seen him hit a cow, and that only when it tore away from the herd to enter someone’s kitchen or front garden. He hit his cows below the shoulder – never on the haunches – gently guiding them back. Like me, he was not much of a talker. But while I had lost my loquacity during my time inside the prison, Gulzar was quiet by disposition. As soon as he had his herd settled on the slope, between the foot of the hill – where I had walked down to and was standing now – and the courtyard of the cottage thick with willows – which I kept an eye on – he reclined on the grass. Then, from the deep side-pocket of his pheran, he produced his flute of rosewood.
Inside this book –The Night of Broken Glass PDF Book by Feroz Rather – It was the month of November, damp and bleak. But that afternoon the sky filled with brilliant light pouring blue into the horizons where clouds lay like mountains of tousled snow. The old, three-storeyed house stood by the main road that ran through central Srinagar, parallel to the river Jhelum. As Wali was away at work, Maryam sat close to Safir in a wicker chair in the back garden, their knees touching. He leaned towards her and brushed back a tendril of her hair that had worked loose, whispering something to her that sounded like a dirty joke. Maryam had only heard the words ‘tickle’ and ‘butt- crack’, but that was enough for her to throw back her head and send the garden resounding with her laughter. She moved in closer to her boyfriend and was about to place her ear close to his lips again when she sensed Wali looming in the kitchen door behind her. As her father stepped into the garden, Safir stood up immediately, sheepishly greeting him. ‘Sit, sit,’ said Wali coldly as Maryam disappeared into the house. As he subsided back into the cane chair, Wali remained standing before him. ‘What’s your name?’ he asked. ‘Safir.’ Maryam had mentioned his name many times during their conversations. ‘Where are you from?’ Wali asked. ‘I am from here … from Srinagar,’ Safir replied. ‘And what do you do?’ Wali asked. ‘I write,’ said Safir after a moment’s hesitation.
