“Kashmir is a paradise on earth only that our summers are blood-spattering, our autumns are fear ridden, our winters are traumatic and our springs are archives of longings. In spite of all this you are invited to come and see the kinship, the laughter, and the merriments. I am not saying this for the sake of spouting cliches but because this is a universal truth arousing within.”

–Zafar Iqbal
