Just A Businessman is the seventh in the True Tales of a Traveller series. The story is set in Indian Kashmir in the mid 1980s and can now finally be told without consequence. At nearly 17,000 words, this story is a lengthy short story which may need more than one sitting. Like the other stories in the series, it provides not only an entertaining read, but also information on all the places visited, some relevant only to the era in which the story is set, but most still relevant today. In addition to being a travel story, Just a Businessman is also a story about religious and ethnic conflict and political upheavals, and the extent to which these factors can affect the life of a traveller, or outsider. The story also provides an insight into the life of travellers in that era and is not solely about Kashmir. It can be read separately from the other stories in the series.
