The Kashmir Conversation

Independence, and a deep mourning

For me, the freedom is to move in your locality without showing identity cards, travel in public transport without getting searched or visit any office without getting frisked or loiter on the road without getting killed. Unfortunately, I have been deprived of all this since people in India and Pakistan got their freedom. I salute those Indians who share my agony when I tell them that I am being caged and curfewed on your Independence Day.
