    Sadly less attention is being given to Wullar than what it merits, rather no attention at all is being diverted to it. It lies far beyond the Dal- the crown of Kashmir, thus beyond any preservation measures.

    Beautiful pictures. Sad but it is true that I don’t expect to visit the place in near future … since the conditions are not yet safe. Last year some of our neighbors faced grenades … let me wait!!

    Safe conditions is something that Kashmiris can only hope for. The fact remains that things have been so abnormal for such a long time, that Kashmiris sometimes think that everything is pretty much normal.

    Kashmiris are hospitable. You are most welcome. Just that we hope that besides speaking of the beautiful place that Kashmir is, you’d speak a word about how the people suffer.

    – I know, but not always Kashmiris do matter. Or do they?
