It is yet another summertime in Kashmir. Flowers are in full bloom. But Kashmir's iconic gardens are locked and deserted. There are no visitors to delve into nature’s ambience. While gardeners remain busy pruning shrubs and hedges, mowing and cutting grass as if waiting for gates to open.
Pity on the man on whom the doors of an earthly paradise are shut, first by man's political folly and now by nature’s wrath.
As the COVID shock begins to recede, it heralds a new hope. That life will one day return to normal. As wise saying goes “Where flowers bloom so does hope”
