    “Aap ne toh badi hamdardi say pechana tha Kashmir ko lekin yahan ki siyasat ka haal na poochiye Ek tawaiaf hai tamaashbeenon main” This dialogue between the author and a Kashmiri Separatist leader struck me the most while reading this book It means “You demonstrated great empathy in understanding Kashmir but politics in Kashmir is like a nautch girl in the midst of spectators deriving pleasure from her plight” Thus is the story of Kashmir not here not there Used and abused by various factions in both countries to fulfil their agendaHaving read “Kashmir” by M J Akbar a journalist “Our Moon has blood clots” by Rahul Pandita a Kashmiri Pandit and “Curfewed Night” by Bashrat Peer a Kashmiri Muslim I was eagerly waiting to read “Kashmir – The Vajpayee years” The book is a first hand account written by AS Daulat the former special director of the Intelligence Bureau IB and a former chief of India’s Research and Analysis Wing RAW of India in conjunction with the journalist Aditya Sinha It is a thrilling account of the happenings in the beautiful but torn valley of Kashmir Being posted in Kashmir on and off over a period of time he gives us an insiders view of a state that has been continually ravaged by external and internal turmoils It is interesting to read how India deals with the different players in the game of politics He discusses the tenure of prime minister “A B Vajpayee” and declares it the most productive time in the history of the Kashmir dialogue between India and Pakistan He further laments the fact that Dr Manmohan Singh missed an opportunity of arriving at any resolution with Pakistan which was a fact also accepted by the former PM himselfNot only does the author explain the dynamics of the leadership but also reveals the stance of the government and the policy makers in detail which I found to be very insightful and intriguingHe offers several revelations in the book including the debacle of the Kandahar hijacking and the stance of the then CM Faroo Abdullah in not releasing any militants in an exchange of victims of kidnapping and the conseuences thereafterLike most books on Kashmir this one also provides us a one sided view from the head of the intelligence agency As an ex spy his opinion does seem a little biased even though at times he criticizes the Indian government and even the army for the raw handed approach towards Kashmir While he discusses his meetings and relations with several top Separatists Political and Militant leaders the author is careful in his disclosures and by his admission there are several significant omissions to maintain propriety Having said that whatever revelations he has made in the book are controversial and startling to say the leastHe ends the book with four “What If’s” that could have reshaped the destiny of the Kashmir we now know He also provides his opinion on the stance that the Modi government should take should they wish to bring some resolution to the issue that has plagued the state and even the country for decades A thoroughly gripping read that I could not lay down even for a minute


  2. Gurleen Kaur Gurleen Kaur says:

    The problem with Delhi has been that it sees everything in black and white whereas Kashmir's favourite colour is greyNo amount of research and analysis could yield a solution to the Kashmir situation because the truth is unless you are a born and true blood Kashmiri you can't come close to understanding the enigma that Kashmir is The bookuntil now presents really nothing that the ordinary citizen of JK wouldn't already know Also it is kind of funny how so many events during those years have been looked overIndeed Kashmir is uniue Over time it becomes a passion and then an obsession And that is perhaps the only thing i didn't want to disagree with


  3. Hrishikesh Hrishikesh says:

    Loads of take away lessons from this book Read it dispassionately and with a critical mind


  4. Ribhav Pande Ribhav Pande says:

    Most books by intelligence officers are an indulgence in self glorification and assigning blame to misadventures Not this one Refreshingly different AS Dulat was one of the Intelligence Bureau’s main people in Kashmir and then went on to head RAW and finally joined the PMO of AB Vajpayee He takes you through the history of Kashmir through his eyes and his close involvement with various official dealings as well as Track II negotiations later in his lifeThe book has been a real eye opener and synthesises the multi faceted nature of Kashmir’s various interests in a wonderfully simple manner There are many interesting anecdotes and occurrences which shed light of the many developments of the region and is a must read for anyone who would like to know Kashmir through one of the prime shakers and movers of the most tumultuous time in its history post circa 1950


  5. Anantha Narayanan Anantha Narayanan says:

    Got great insight into the Kashmir issue But the title Vajpayee years makes little sense as he talks majorly of Faroo Abdullah and his nationalism than vajpayee Good listen in audible


  6. A Man Called Ove A Man Called Ove says:

    255 Picked this one up with high expectations because of the publicity this book had received on its release and also because the author is ex RAW chief and had also been on duty in Kashmir in his careerOn the positive side Dulat believed in talking to everyone be it separatists militants Pakistani military Pakistani intelligence Because of this you get to know about a wide spectrum of people and their role in Kashmir And while I felt Dulat is too much of a left liberal he also came across as honest and didnt impose his opinions For example he was IB head in Srinagar when the Kashmiri Pandit exodus took place in 1990 and he clearly absolves Jagmohan of orchestrating it This is unlike the line toed by left liberal apologists in IndiaOn the negative side he was after all a bureaucrat and this book is full of namesdropping useless trivia and glorifying the mundane For example he describes in detail how he stayed behind on a trip in Hong Kong to drive Gyani Zail Singh around This was really annoying and left me wondering if a sensible person like Dulat is so vain what about the rest of our bureaucracy The rating would have been higher if the book would have been tightly edited and better structured

  8. Umesh Kesavan Umesh Kesavan says:

    KashmirThe Vajpayee years a book by ASDulat who worked in Kashmir during his stints at IBRAW and PMO An insider's view of how the separatists and violence in the Valley was handled by Delhi It makes for an interesting read and shows that the solution to Kashmir issue lies in dialogue and dialogue alone Dulat reveals lot of high level secrets in the course of the narrative Though there are shortcomings in the style too many namestoo much detailing the substance than makes up for it Must read to know how to bridge the gap between Delhi and Srinagar

    35 5 Stars True Wonderer“Shishon ka messiah koi nahin kyon aas lagaye baithe ho” ― AS Dulat Orignally A nazm by FaizAS Dulat has always been an enigma to me which for a ‘spook’ I dare say is a great thing but he isn’t an enigma because he is so mysterious he’s an enigma because he isn’t He always comes across as a completely approachable happy go lucky and even a little soft and malleable guy Now how much of this is an act just to give the other guy a false sense of security his whole life has been centered around accumulating information via human and other intelligence and how much of it is really his personality is where the confusion isKashmir the heaven under siege from outside and within has always been a sensitive point in the subcontinent ever since independence in 1947 Numerous attempts and follies have occurred since then to normalize the situation But The Vajpayee Years 1998 – 2004 were one of the best attempts by the Indian government to peacefully resolve all issues yes mistakes and blunders were made even in those in hindsight we will find blunders in almost everything but the patience and perseverance of Atal Ji and NDA at that time despite all kinds of provocations plane hijackings kidnappings Kargil war and the attack on the parliament MrVajpayee to the best of his ability preached peace to the end And AS Dulat was there for it all not just as a witness but as a key player himself To know the situation and possible ways forward from his point of view is pricelessI read somewhere “Democracy is the end of Revolution” and for an armed misguided militant revolution this is the best possible way I believe for Kashmir this was the strategy of IB or RAW to stop militants from taking innocent lives please form a front and contest elections BE the voice of the people formally and then talk through the issues with the government in the center All through the book I saw attempts being made by the IB and RAW and AS Dulat himself personally to turn the militant commanders bullets into ballets to turn them to sense to make them reject radicalization and embrace the ideas of democracy ‘Azaadi’ within the constitution the constitution of one of the largest and successful welldebatable but is really is democracy in the world From that point of view AS Dulat writes about the hits and misses in the Kashmiri political scene the players in it the best of them the worse of them He emphasizes the important of the Abdullah family specially Faroo Abdullah as an important part of the solution if it is ever to be realized He writes extensively about the ‘separatist’ commanders and leaders who could have turned the tide by entering politics and could have made an actual difference like ‘Mirwaiz Umar Faroo’ ‘Shabir Shah’ etc bringing peace to the valley Vajpayee wanted peace considered Kashmiris to be as Indian as him wanted to end their as well as the rest of the countries pain from this situation the separatists politicians militants if they were ever serious about ending this conflict lost a golden opportunity with himWhat he doesn’t talk about is “Why?” why in the goddamn hell are we in this mess why for the love of god do we still entertain a theocratic two nation theory type nonsense idea And the reason is too much has happened too much blood anguish and pain has been suffered by the Kashmiri people to just let go of this idea which to any reasonable person on earth seems ludicrous Kashmir joining Pakistan was always a fantasy and after 70 years it is uite clear that they can offer them nothing that the whole concept of the two nation theory was a bad joke Then comes ‘Azaadi’ Kashmir making itself as a separate country firstly ‘Why?’ two nation theory is a bad idea Ok so leave that then they have issues with the center well so does every state in the country that is why we have a state and a center government to solve these issue and work for the benefit of the people The point is to Keep the church and the state separate why? we can see our neighbor in our country this difference too is not absolute sometimes but it is THERE in the constitution and it is the best iteration of the idea among st all in the regionBut enough ranting this is a good book AS Dulat keeps a lot of things close to his chest no operational details are mentioned hell no intelligence operations are mentioned at all The impression he gives is our job is to just talk to people so that’s what he does and that’s what he suggests talk talk talk and if you can’t then talk about talking He represents the voice of reason in this mess the dove whose job might seem to be hawkish To know the region the nitty gritty of the politics and reflect on the basic frustration of the Kashmiris to try and fail to achieve the elusive “Peace with Honor” This is a great book go for it if you have interest in the region because this is the best way to read about it without malice towards any side in the pursuit of a common ground
