A Feminine Heart


I am your most loving mother.

Your ever caring sister, my brother.


I am your better half- your wife.

Your daughter whom you consider your life.


I take care of you, live for you.

Don’t I deserve a bit of respect, too?


I sacrifice my joys, happiness and everything.

In return, don’t I deserve even something?


I supress my thought for I fear.

You’ll feel agonized if you hear.


More than me you safeguard the gold.

Is it my marriage or I am being sold?


So to say, you gave me freedom.

But I here feels it seldom.


My heart aches and it pains.

I weep deep inside, like it rains.


O ye Men! I continue to suffer.

How can you still act so tougher?

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
