“Book is based in Kashmir and is an unusual story of two Kashmiri teenagers amidst the curfew-laden Kashmir valley,” the statement said  Aamir Ali founder Let’s write said ‘our aim is to inculcate book reading and writing culture among the youth of Kashmir and encourage youth of Kashmir to write and publish their books”
