'Political turmoil of past couple of decades in Kashmir has affected more or less every sphere of life in the valley... Obviously such a politically hyperactive situation wouldn't have come about without the bearing on the psychodynamics that regulate the power of creativity... but facing enormous odds some unsung innovators from the informal sector continue to thrive and create new things.' This is from Sheikh Fayaz Ahmad's latest book; peace is essential for an innovation-ecosystem but even in the midst of situations which were psychologically dreadful, there were innovations brought up by the unsung and unaided grassroots innovators of Kashmir. Indeed, this book is a tribute to the unsung innovators of Kashmir whose innovations went unacknowledged and unappreciated. It is a compilation of 20 interviews (it has been narrated like a story) with the grassroots innovators which were garnered over a period of three years.
