    Note: I am currently in Srinagar, in middle of this... We have been on curfew since Sat meaning the city is shut down. It's risky to drive anywhere people want to pelt stones etc. Nearly all deaths are protestors and I think one police officer. Police stations have been set on fire, a military air base was targeted, etc. It's not good situation overall.

    But we are safe at home here in middle of Srinagar. And we have access to vegetables and fruits at sporadic stands and my husband sister has a garden and even cows so mik and veggies from her also (getting them is a bit tricky but hubby went in wee hrs of morning to get them before most people are awake).

    Kashmir is Muslim majority but there is a sizeable Sikh population here. There was supposed to be a big Sikh cultural and talent event here on Sunday 10th with acts from even away like Steel Man (I was even supposed to perform in it doing Kirtan) but it had to be cancelled and rescheduled for later date and some of these Sikh performers (Gatka groups etc) as far as I know are still stranded at their hotel.

    Harkiran Kaur Ji, it's good to hear that you are safe. What is the rioting about?
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
