Here I come back to the land of the hartals and curfews

Here I am in Kashmir, came on the 26th of April..Am wearing a pheran and always thinking about the power supply...

The Airport looks good and so does my room.. I havent had a chance to look at the flyover in Hyderpora.. Thanks to the sudden imposition of a Curfew and a runny nose.. Thanks to the cold for that..

All I can see is that people love their new Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah and that people are talking about the new cellualr services of Tata Indicom and Reliance.. I seem to have misplaced my SIM card so I am currently disconnected.. (I had a BSNL, one and the same thing)..

I can see that a lot of people are speaking Urdu that looks more like Kashmiri.. One of the famous phrases that I myself am repeating everyday is "Pathar Betho"..

A post by my brother and friend..

"The lover, in and out, fancies his beloved in different situations. He gives time out of his study-time and finds himself unable to requisitely concentrate on his studies. It greatly eats into his academic excellence and at times could be more severe and havoc-causing. More-over, the economic aspect of the relation couldn’t be overlooked. Many-a-times, male-partner buys costly gifts or shares the financial needs of his beloved, out the money for his educational purposes like books. I know of a KU student who bought a golden-ring for her girl-friend out of the money reserved for his medicine. He sees a potential wife in her girl-friend and shares her financial needs. The trust gets ingrained and an element of possessiveness gets incorporated in the relationship. The ‘love-constitution’--- do’s, don’ts, restrictions, is framed and peer relations are cut-short."

A great article, nicely written, generalising the overall in Kashmir..
