Here we are already!
Words after words, cups after cups, another year ends and Rich Autumns is now five years old.
Should we celebrate?
This year was definitely not the happiest in Kashmir. More than 100 days spent under curfew and lockdown consecutively. Countless number of people dead and blinded. We are now all witnesses, this blog included, to what went down in a small valley that tries to keep to its own.
But after so much scarring and loss, Srinagar is still a beautiful city where people still choose to live in hope of a better tomorrow.
