A Flower Filled Gulmarg

I intended to show the Gulmarg flowers as soon as I got back from the trip, which was in September 2014. But at that time Jammu and Kashmir were badly affected by floods. It made no sense to write about rain drenched flowers when the state was facing one of its worst crisis. But those … Read more

Beautiful Srinagar

For this Friday’s sky watch I had to once again rummage through my old folders. I went to Srinagar twice this year, one in June and once in September. And I was almost caught in the floods in September. In all I have been to Kashmir three times now. But I still feel I have … Read more

Catching a Flight in the Srinagar Floods!

This is a petty post. This is about my difficulties in catching a flight out of Srinagar yesterday, the day Jhelum River breached its banks. However, this minor tragedy collided with the major tragedy of the Srinagar floods, of the Kashmir Floods. I went to The Khyber Resorts (Gulmarg) on Friday, September 5, as I was … Read more
