We are as normal and peaceful as you are.
The only thing you will find in every house is a Kangri.
2. People live on the mountains: No doubt we are surrounded with the most beautiful scenery but that doesn’t mean we are mountain dwellers. Only a few parts of the state has mountains. Yes, there are people who live on the mountains but sorry to break it to you but all Kashmiris don’t live on mountains. Kashmir is a valley. We have schools, colleges, markets like any other places in the country. Yes, on the hilly areas as well.
We kinda rock!
Also, children hardly study in madrassas. We have missionary schools in large numbers as well as other schools.
8. Women are suppressed: People think women are suppressed here just because they are covered. Most of them think we want to walk naked. Haha! Being covered has nothing to do with suppression. Kashmiris consider girls as a blessing. Women in Kashmir are equally empowered. You’ll find them in schools, colleges, work-places. We also have business women. Also, women have a say, be it household or other matters.
9. It’s always cold in Kashmir: Yes, it’s cold in winters but not to such an extent that it won’t let you work. It’s not Antarctica here nor are we surrounded by snow all the year around. If lucky, we get it twice or thrice a year in winters. This might come to you as a bit of a shock but, Jammu has never seen snow.
Love from Kashmir.
