For the fallen Paradise called Kashmir

There is nothing called Paradise,  at least not any more.  There is a fallen-Paradise called Kashmir. There is a Kashmir that has holes, small and big, all over her body. Blood oozes relentlessly from these holes, holes because of  bullets and pellets.  Blood oozes from the young and the old, and Kashmir wails, withers, and shrieks even in the deadliest of silences. The heavy  boots  tromp  on  the  petal soft breast of Kashmir. Under these boots- hands, legs, faces, chests, and genitals are crushed, of children, youth,  and the old, of  men and women . They are crushed as Kashmiris,  not as Kashmiri Mussalmans, or as  Kashmiri Pundits.

Kashmir is no more what ‘spring does with cherry trees’. It is what savageness and power play does to humankind.

I do not know what will Kashmir turn into – an Islamic caliphate or the Palestine of South Asia. But I certainly know what pellets can do, and what bullets are capable of. Kashmir is not about Mujaheedin and its extremist religious fundamentalism. Kashmir is not also about being called ‘India owned’ or ‘prospectively snatched by Pakistan’. Kashmir is about the 4 million people who have the basic right to live, and live without scars. Citizenship rights come much later, humanitarianism  comes  first.

Kashmir bleeds, every day. Kashmir wails, every moment.

Kashmir is about all those ‘small shoes’, that were, are, and will be never worn.

  1. Will The heaven turn in Hell ? The Hell, where the minds are engulfed in flames, the Hell , where the eyes dips into dark and the Hell, where the newer minds play with bloody mud in fetid air. Kashmir becomes The Kashmir in every decade , more than because of the creation of the playground where the Heaven only defeats. The Guns filled up by bullets or pellets maims the lives of thousands or more than thousands

    They must be given the Right to decide their fate. If they want to live as Independent state, they should, or the any of the other two options…….
