Kashmir through my lens!

Had been on a short holiday to Kashmir. Sharing a few pictures and my thoughts on this paradise on earth.

Statutory warning : My pictures and words do not do much justice in capturing the true essence and beauty of the place. ๐Ÿ™‚

Crown of the Indian subcontinent, radiant sheen of its bejewelled peaks transcends boundaries

beauty of seasonal variegations, pens a lyrical ballad sung by the drifting zephyrs

the valley bursts into a vibrant serenade of hues in summer and lulls itself to frozen rhapsody, when the cold northern winds blow

its frigid winters is thawed by the warm hospitality of its people, locals who celebrate brotherhood over religion

prayers in intoned cadence of the azan* melds in harmony with the chants resonating from the temples

Rogan ghosh, wazwan, kahwa, sheermal,  rajma, kesar and spices waft a delectable culinary trail

Kashmir, a confluence of tranquil divinity and transcendental allure, is sheer sensory nirvana.

  1. What a lilting tribute to the enchanting Kashmir!

    You took me back in time with the images and your mellifluous words.

    I was there in August last year, for the first time; and fell head over heels in love with this paradise on earth and itโ€™s people.

    Hope you got to stay on a houseboat too, Radhika ?

    Wishing you a rejuvenating weekend. Much love๐Ÿงก๐ŸŒป
