"Orphan" is a true story of three boys, who are brought up by their maternal aunt. It is a story of an average Kashmiri household. Although focus of the story is three boys, but I tried to depict life as it existed in early fifties. Details of Kashmiri culture, especially marriage ceremony etc. is described in lucid detail.
Initial chapters of book were written in as early as 1988; some more chapters were written in late nineties, because of official engagements, I could not complete the book till 2005. Almost all events in the book such as Jana paying visit to her cousin in the country side are based on real events.
Most of chapters especially initial ones were written with full feedback from main character of late Jana. I hope readers will like the book and that will be my greatest satisfaction.
