According to the researcher, the novel's protagonist has a disturbed mental state brought on by violence. There many elements which can induce mental disturbances. These elements include frequent bombardment, a shortage of basic amenities in contested regions, homelessness, the murder and kidnapping of family members, and others. The study also looks at how the victims of this mental disorder suffered from inferiority complexes and self-shattering. The novel's author provides a window into the protagonist's mind and paints a vivid picture of his anxieties. The narration's phantasmagoria offers us several perspectives on the story. This analysis supports the idea that the selected novel of Gigoo emphasizes life is difficult &nbsp;for Kashmiris.</p> Rizwana Saadia Copyright (c) 2023 International Journal of Linguistics and Culture 2023-05-23 2023-05-23 4 1 10.52700/ijlc.v4i1.175
