    The news has been so focused on Syria, Turkey, and Ukraine, that
    India’s aggressive annexation of the disputed territory of Kashmir in early August was just a flicker on most people’s consciousness. The years of separatist violence, often fueled by Pakistan, then harshly repressed
    by India has largely been ignored in the US.

    Victoria Schofield has traveled in and written extensively about South
    Asia, especially in reference to the Jammu-Kashmir region. She is
    an engaging speaker and, though she lives in Great Britain, is a good
    friend of World Affairs Council Inland Southern California. Let us
    welcome her by sharing a meal and discussion during
    Thanksgiving week.
