This description of Susheela Bhan's work was prepared when Susheela Bhan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Professor Susheela Bhan is working through government schools in war-ravaged Kashmir to forge a new nonviolent identity for citizens based on common secular and pluralistic traditions. Her method uses the very institutions and persons most seriously damaged by the conflict to address the confusion and hostility that continue to erode Kashmiri society.
