When a few years ago I wrote a book about Kashmir in 1947, I harboured the hope that it would be translated into Hindi and Urdu, and so gain a wider readership in south Asia. I wondered whether it might perhaps appear in French, Italian (the book opens with my account of a meeting with Sister Emilia, an aged, inspiring Italian nun serving in Kashmir) and other European languages.
It hasn't happened - yet. But A Mission in Kashmir has now, much to my pleasure, been published in Tamil. It's been translated by B.R. Mahadevan and published by New Horizon Media.
The cover is excellent - I trust the translation is every bit as good. Do let me know!
Courtesy of the publishers, I have rather more copies of my book in Tamil than the one, 'trophy' copy I require. So if you are in the UK, read Tamil, and would like a copy of this book, get in touch, and I'll send you one.
