Kashmir: Daily Life

I've never seen anywhere in the world as beautiful as Kashmir. It has something to do with the fact that the valley is very small and the mountains are very big, so you have this miniature countryside surrounded by the Himalayas, and it's just spectacular. And it's true, the people are very beautiful too.

Well, that the thing these kids grow through conflict, they live in the worlds most militarised one in the world called "KASHMIR" Despite its called Heaven on Earth but the tyranny of India and the efforts of Pakistan to help Kashmir to get it out of the illegitimate grasp of India. In the crux, this very paradise in the world is teh bone of contention between india , and Pakistan and China coz of its beauty and resources it has turned into the hell, and yet is paradise on Earth. Dissperences, Mass Rapes, Judicial Killings, Killings, Illegal Occpied land of people and turned into bunkers, torture, and if someone tries to speak a word he/she is either hanged to death by calling the rebel a terroirst or anti national. there so many Human Rights Violations even the Human rights activists claim that our hands shiver when we jot down the torment India and its Army lay upon Kashmir and its people. So, dear admin this what these kids go through, day after day and indeed tehre ain'tr any freedon of speech and expression or happiness, if it is seen the teh photographs consider taht as their coping up with the situations and that smile is just temporary as the tyrant is ready to turn it into a frown, its justa matter of time when at what time of the day.
