The Association of Small Bombs

by Karan Mahajan

Kashmiri separatists and other dissident Indian groups only use small bombs to cause chaos. The casualties may be few but the impact is far-reaching. Twelve-year-old Mansoor is one such survivor, but sees his two school friends perish. What kind of escape is this and how does life continue for the ’lucky’ ones? A sad read which is both atmospheric and realistic. Will definitely make you think.
