Srinagar’s floating vegetable market



In the backwaters of Srinagar’s Dal Lake, a floating vegetable market adds to the pristine beauty of this city. Several boats, locally called as Shikaras, are filled with different kinds of vegetables, grown by the residents of these areas. They float at morning to sell their produce. But it doesn’t only remain a market, like any other, it also adds color and music to this otherwise quiet lake. Shahid Tantray brings these images from one such morning.




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.
