Where Even The Daughter’s Mind is Without Fear, And Even Her Head is Held High

Kashmiri muslim school girls dressed in traditional outfits

I met two innocent girls singing at a crossroads during my trip to the Kashmir valley. There was an exuberance infused in their song and they were dancing without any care for tomorrow. It was probably a folk song. I don’t remember the girls’ names now. But I still recall their fondness for Maggi. One of them told me that whenever they got money from the tourists, they immediately headed to spend it at a local food stall. This little encounter with the two happy and talented souls stayed with me as a serendipitous memory for some time.

Paradise on earth

Dena with her students

Paradise has colours of its own, bright and rare! Kashmir has been called the paradise on earth so it sure does have colours. But what kind of colours are these? Conflict has ridden this place and the minds of its people into shades of anger, frustration and hopelessness. From nature’s golden greens to the black, grey and red shades of conflict, the paradise has had a paradigm shift.
