After my repatriation from Pakistan in January 1995 I foundit quite expedient to write articles for the local Englishdailies of Kashmir to apprise the valiant struggling people of Kashmir of the various aspects of Kashmir issue. Whilediscussing Kashmir issue I have also dwelt on someimportant problems of the global civil society. It is for thereaders to assess the importance and worth of the articleswhich constitute the compilation “Quest For Friends, NotMasters”. (Volume-II). I have selected only the mostrelevant articles for this compilation. The book will certainlyhelp the young students and scholars of Kashmir in their in-depth study of Kashmir problem. In the articles written after Sept. 11, 2001 episode I have made an honest effort toexplain how the menace of violence can be stamped out. Sothe book is equally helpful for those analysts who areengaged in a serious business to suggest means and methodsfor ensuring global peace.
