When I was a kid, my village was across the Indian-controlled Kashmir. I saw shooting, bullets, explosions, dying soldiers in front of my eyes. So many people died because of the war, I don’t know why can’t we just live peacefully. Kashmir is known as paradise on earth, but life here is not. Last year, earthquake rocked our beloved Kashmir. It was the end of the world, so many people died. I lost some members of my family, but Allah to be praised, my daughter is still with me.
