I wonder what makes Kashmiris and Kashmir different from rest of the nation?
Why it’s beautiful, serene yet not peaceful ?
Why being Indian, they don’t like Army?
And still few people join Army?
Why the stories that reach us are one sided ?
If it’s true ,what media shows, then why did this ever happen?
Because nation forgot them when they needed us? Or were they given extra importance when it was not all required?
Why can’t Jammu and Kashmir be a normal state – Normal people, Living in peace?
Or may be they are , it’s just that we don’t know !
Everyday there is something about Kashmir , be it politics , army, people, girls or natural disasters.
We see what is portrayed . We read what is served to us and we believe what is shown . And all that is only one side of the story, I believe.
I have friends from different states, have met them (few more to go) , talked to them but I never had any friend from Kashmir. I want to know what media doesn’t show. And that’s possible only when a Kashmiri, unbiased, neutral – tells !
And then someday, inshaAllah, will visit there. Not just Leh – Ladakh but the real J & K 🙂
