SRINAGAR — Kashmir defies explanation. It is as enigmatic and mind twisting as it is mystifying. This is a reality that hobbles every effort to make a sense of the situation, either for oneself or for the world. The challenge is, therefore, to articulate it in all its complexity, which is hardly possible in hard everyday reportage.
To explain and comprehend Kashmir at a profounder level requires us to move not only beyond everyday news but also at times to change the medium itself. And this is what we have chosen to do at Kashmir Observer by supplementing our coverage of Kashmir with a video documentation of the prevailing situation.
We are moving into visual medium to add further depth and heft to our Kashmir coverage. We have lined up a series of video documentaries titled 'Unravel Kashmir' to highlight aspects of the Kashmir reality overlooked in the rush of daily reportage. Our first documentary, Young Minds In A Conflict Zone, takes a closer look at the anxiety of the youth caught in the current maelstrom.
