In 3 weeks exploring Kashmir, i experienced an overwhelming contrast of beauty, hospitality, and tragedy.
This video is what i saw, in 3 minutes.
This is my video-attempt to make people aware of this misunderstood part of the world, spread the word, and try to make things change.
In the XIII century, Kashmir was described by Persians poets as Heaven on Earth.
Since the Independence in 1947, Kashmir initially decided to remain independent, choosing not to become a part of either Pakistan or India.
Since then, this Heaven slowly faded to a place where blood spilling is part of daily life.
But the Kashmiri people is the most welcoming and hospitable on earth, taking life in such an easy way, that is sometimes hard to believe that it's sadly a war zone.
