Book Review on Ayaz Rasool Nazki’s Songs of Light

  • Ayaz Rasoolnazki


The dedication sets up the tone for this remarkable collection of poems on Kashmir: “When I sang the songs of light, they blinded all my eyes.”

He speaks of a world beyond Kashmir, full of light and perhaps joy, “but our blinded and blindfolded eyes cannot see it” -  a desolate mirror to Kashmir today, and the writer’s burden as witness and raconteur of the state of his world.
