A city torn between two countries

As above describes, Kashmir is a state torn between Pakistan and India. Geographically, it is under the ruling of India... the people however, deems themselves as Pakistani and as a result, numerous conflicts and wars arises up till now...

Kashmir is extravagantly beautiful, in all seasons. surrounded by 3 himalayan ranges, the first sight which greeted one upon arrival by air, is the snow capped majestic mountains from the northwest all the way to the northeast.

In fact, to quote the Mughal Emperor, "Gar Bar-ru-e -Zamin Ast; Hamin ast, Hamin Ast Hamin Aso" ie "If there is paradise on this earth, this is it. This is it. This is it."*

And well, I totally agree with the above sentiment!

    As recent visiter I assure all those tourists that the soldiers of the indian army are the extremely helpful people and without the presence of whom it would be impossible for all those who wish to visit and travel in and around J&k and Ladakh region.
