.one too many.

…a place for waste…

merry.go.round.

with 11 comments

just another average week in Kashmir.

four deaths.

two gang rapes.

countless rock fights.

three funerals.

one hundred cups of salty chai.

ten days of strikes.

one thousand shells of tear gas.

one million stones being thrown.

lots of angry kids.

lots of crying women.

lots of angry cops.

lots of crusty dry old kashmiri bagels.

lots of cheap hash.

lots of imported mangoes.

some things change.

some don’t.

  9. I wrote on my blog this morning:

    “Then I opened Canaperi’s blog and saw this.

    It should have put things in perspective, right?

    I’ll tell you the truth. It didn’t help”

    What did help was reading the comments. Sitting in San Diego drinking a smoothie. That helped.

  10. WOW! That is Kashmir in my country? I never knew. I know of all the wars and fights and all those things but the images were a revelation.

    I am sure you did not care much for Kashmir too eh?

  11. Dude, honestly, i love Kashmir. it is my favorite place in the Subcontinent. i swear. but it’s got problems. and those issues are so embedded in the culture it’ll be years before they untangle the mess that they’ve made. they as in everyone…
