I came to realize that there is more to Kashmir than the one-sided narratives of “trouble” and “jannat.”
I had no idea that it would be the beauty of your people that would really overwhelm me.

A 20-something girl set out to defy societal expectations… at 34, I feel ready to shed her skin and find new unknowns to tread.
The first rays of sunlight penetrated the darkness outside my window, revealing layers of dramatic, snow-dusted, desolate mountains.
In the midst of this storm, I’ve been learning to readjust my sails.
