Alas those fine days are gone.....

My love affair with Kashmir started way back on 1982 when I first landed there as a wee toddler. I still remember parts of Pahalgam, Sonemarg and Gulmarg though it was all a bit hazy like a sepia photograph from my father's old trunk.
And then the sad turn of events in the valley crushed all my hopes of visiting it when I was growing up...However, thankfully my dying dreams got a fresh lease of life when I got a project to work with J&K Bank in 2005. Between Nov 05 and March 06 there were 4 trips to the state-on work and hence not much of trekking/backpacking involved. However, some beautiful moments were snatched in between which I shall treasure forever......A short and sweet love affair with this beautiful land.

Friends- beautiful friends

Omar, Sehar, Javed Bhai, Aashiq bhai......so many beautiful beautiful people....I am truly overwhelmed by your warmth and hospitality shown at every occasion.

    Beautiful page to start with Sharmistha. You could have made more tips instead of collage of photographs. I saved all the Dal lake photographs. Great start, please put some more.
