Pashka Bystrov, known around the village as Speedy, was leaning back against the warm stove and despondently watching his wife, Galka.

कश्मीर घाटी में बुधवार 12 फरवरी को 25 विदेशी प्रतिनिधि घाटी पहुंचे तो शांति मगर बेरुखी छाई हुई थी। वैसे भी, 11 फरवरी को 1984 में तिहाड़ में फांसी पर चढ़ा दिए गए जेकेएलएफ के संस्थापक मोहम्मद मकबूल भट की बरसी पर कड़ी सुरक्षा के बीच पूर्ण हड़ताल थी, लेकिन विदेशी प्रतिनिधियों को यात्रा में कोई खलल नहीं पड़ा।
