OK reading. A revenge story that is a sort of mix of invisibility stories with David Marusek's "Osama Phone Home".
Story summary.Shahid is a man from Doda (JK, India) who's lost his family over the years to multiple terrorist attacks. Now it's time for his revenge.
He sets up a lab in Delhi to develop an invisibility paint. Spread it on a surface, & the surface becomes invisible because "it absorbs light"! Won't absorbing light make it black, & easily identifiable against the background? But I'm nit-picking.
Anyway, his plan is to go across the border to PoK, & plant bombs in terrorist training camps being run with Pakistan government's aid. He will be successful, but die after returning in rain because of a side effect of invisibility paint discovered too late - paint washes off in water, removing invisibility, but this solution is fatal to wearer.
I guess social mores prevented the author from stating that the man must have crossed the border naked. He had painted his body; not his clothes.
