Just Published "Unsung Innovators of Kashmir" by Sheikh Fayaz Ahmad

"Unsung Innovators of Kashmir" by Sheikh Fayaz Ahmad (M.Phil Student, Centre for Studies in Science Policy, School of Social Sciences). Srinagar: Gulshan Books, 2011. ISBN: 978-81-8339-120-7. Price: Rs. 495/-



Political turmoil of past couple of decades in Kashmir has affected more or less every sphere of life in the valley. Besides the physical and material costs, the psychological impact of the conflict too has been very profound. However, even in the face of psychologically stressful situations, over the years, there have been other changes as well in Kashmir that have influenced the innovation ecosystem somehow .As of now, the situation is not so pleasing although it is not hopeless. My effort in compiling all my stories on unsung innovators of Kashmir in a book form is a small endeavor to prove all those people wrong who think that the people of Kashmir can't be innovative either.
