A Kashmiri woman kisses the tombstone of her son at martyrs graveyard in Srinagar, Kashmir, 2008. After the funeral prayers & protests with thousands of other mourners celebrating the life of the deceased & protesting the occupation, family members & friends must grieve alone & recover from their loss. Every new funeral must evoke the sorrow of their own loss like a wound that never heals.
End the occupation. Self-determination for Kashmir.
