The Bollywood Cookbook: The Glamorous World of the Stars and Over 75 of Their Favorite Recipes
Just like there are two ways to approach India; there are two, often conflicting, ways to observe and analyze Kashmir-a romantic one and a realistic one. The romantic vision consists in assimilating Kashmir to a "paradise", a word systematically associated with the area. De facto, Kashmir's magic exists and still works on most visitors. But Kashmir's unique environment is under tremendous pressure and only a realistic approach can ring the alarm bell. Most books published on Kashmir talk about the insurrection, Indian and international politics and their consequences on Kashmir. Most pictures on Kashmir printed in newspapers or magazines feature militants, soldiers or civilians in the context of the conflict. This book avoids the complacency normally associated with beautiful pictures and clearly addresses both sides of the story on the most important issues; at times, showing the dark side of Kashmir. The book is aimed at capturing the spirit of the land and the people of the Kashmir valley.
