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. 🙂
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.
