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"..

Good Intentions and planning a lovely time in Paradise...
