The News Behind the News

Kashmir defies analysis, prognostication and prediction. It is as enigmatic and mind twisting as it is mystifying. Kashmir Observer takes upon itself to unravel the mystery and mystique of Kashmir.

With an experience of over two decades in print and online journalism and drawing upon its expertise and insights, KO launches Observer TV (OTV), Kashmir’s first online television to bring you the news and views behind the news.

OTV will be featuring videos of events, peoples’ views, conversations with eminence grises and experts and analyses that go beyond the obvious and the apparent. We aim to educate, inform, analyze and inspire.

Keep tuned and watch Kashmir unravel on OTV.
