Watch | Inside Kashmir’s village of poets

The tradition of poetry in the village was born a century ago when one of its residents, Shah Ibrahim, started to pen verses. The following generation of poets created a culture of poetry in Tilgham and inspired Ranjoor, 70, and many others – some of them are young and some now with wrinkled faces.

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.
