Launching author Rahul Pandita’s book “Our Moon has Blood Clots”, a memoir of atrocities suffered by the Hindu Pandits in Kashmir in 1990 and of their exodus from the Valley, filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra recalled how his family too had to flee from their house in Kashmir.
“For me, this book is not only Rahul Pandita’s story or Pandits story, this is also my story. This is exactly what happened to me. My mother came here to attend the premiere of ‘Parinda’ and she could not go back,” the 60-year-old said here Monday at the book launch.
“So, I can only thank Rahul for telling our story and bringing it out for the world to know what actually happened to the Kashmiri Pandits and non-Muslims who had to just get up and leave overnight. Our homes were looted, my brother was hit with a sword,” he added.
