Photographer's Note

.
full frame, no crop, candid..

A lot of the villages after drass have a strong population of Muslims. Islamic studies form an integral part of their curriculum. There is a strong urge to project their ideas, presence, wearing Hijab etc among the young girls is follows religiously and why not..

Even at this age they are ready to speak their mind and have an opinion and why not..

Oozing in self confidence, they are ready to be "Kashmiris"..and why not..

the stigma of being Kashmiri, even now as i speak violence and turmoil is up ten fold and parts of the valley is bleeding again, the political system in the region that uses innocent people as pawns, since independence they have been tied down and oppressed, will they ever get out of their miseries..

Kashmiris...

Let there be a free Kashmir..

Let there be hope for this young girl, just another young girl..
