Dispute and struggle has invariably seen great attention from media, political forces and other such bodies. But on 19th January 1990 when three hundred and twenty thousand Kashmiri Pandits where forced to leave their homeland and the world remained silent. This documentary portrays the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits, the native inhabitants of the valley, because of militancy in the valley. It expresses the hurt and anguish suffered by Kashmiri Pandits who are refugees in their own country. The systematic killing of the Kashmiri Pundit's leaders started of in early 1989-1990 where the stalwarts of the community were slaughtered and it was continued along with mass killings and molestations of the Pandit women. The exodus of Pandits followed this and the ethnic cleansing continued vehemently in the valley. It is high time that the world politics breaks its silence on an issue that has created a mayhem in the lives of three hundred and twenty thousand Kashmiri Pandits.
