Book released

Srinagar: A novel “Sure” was released here on Sunday which is authored by a 19-year-old Raafat Gilani.
The book is set in Spain during the Spanish civil war, and follows the life of two friends as the trauma of war rends their lives apart, the statement said.
Rafaat said, “I wanted to move away from the common narrative of speaking about Kashmir, and yet I wished to write about the theme of war which is familiar to us.”
Speaking at the release, Ehsaan Quddusi from FreshCode books publications said, “We strive to provide our authors with the complete bouquet of services from editing to proofreading to publishing to marketing all under the same roof. We wish to make Kashmir a hub of literature.”
The chief guest RJ Nasir praised the book and said, “It is heartening to see young authors are taking the initiative to develop a literary culture in Kashmir. I can safely predict that in the coming year’s literature from Kashmir will come into its own.”
The book will be available on all e-commerce stores and on Freshcode Books online store.
