There is a due process to someone’s leaving.

There is a farewell,

An expectation of return,

Or a recognition of the finality of going.


Even in a farce, you see,

Or any kind of act, for that matter,

Exits for characters are marked as clearly

As their entry.


But when they are lifted out of scenes by aerialists,

Transported through false ceilings

And kept behind cage doors no one knows about,


The act, the actors and the audience are frozen

In perpetuity.

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.
