Set in the once-fabled land of Kashmir, Behold, I Shine moves beyond male voices and focuses, instead, on what the struggle means for the Valley s women and children-those whose husbands remain untraceable; whose mothers are half-widows; those who have confronted the wrath of Ikhwanis , or the scrutiny of men in uniform, and what it means to stand up to it all. This book also brings to focus the resilience of the Valley s women and children-of activists like Parveena Ahangar and Anjum Zamrud Habib, who, after debilitating losses, start human rights organizations; of ordinary homemakers like Munawara who have taken on the judiciary; and of a young generation of thinkers like Uzma Falak and Essar Batool who foreground the interaction of gender, politics and religion, and won t let Kashmir forget. Stitching together their narratives, Behold, I Shine not only memorializes women s voices-thus far forgotten, unwritten, suppressed or sidelined-but also celebrates the mighty spirit of the Valley.
