The Kashmiri Short Story was born with the progressive movement in Kashmir and it accepted the standards and values dictated by the movement unquestioningly. Nationalism and the desire for reaching out to people inspired most of the writers to switch over to  Kashmiri, even though they had started writing in Urdu. Dinanath Nadim's Javabi Card (Reply-Card) and Somnath Zutshi's Yell Phol Gash (When there was Light)are the first two short stories written in Kashmiri.

The early sixties marked the dawn of the modern Kashmiri short story. The short story writer today is trying to handle the changing values and uncertainties of this environment by bringing fresh perspective to them and breaking free from stereotypes.
