To Guilt and Conscience


Forcing themselves off the birch.

Those dried leaves were jittery.


Hot summer winds.

Do not trouble you under their shade.


There is no fixed time.

When you cannot be at peace with ease.


Though crimes can never be predicted.

Your pride is itself a crime.


As opaque as a hazy tone.

Your sight is itself a disguise.

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.
