| Jannat – e – Kashmir |

There is no place as beautiful as Kashmir”
My grandfather’s voice still echoes in my head.
I was a little kid when he used to sing songs in praise of this place which was as beautiful as heaven.
Being a poet and a folklorist he had written many stories and songs about it.

I, being a kid, used to ask him – If it’s so beautiful then why did we run from there Daddy?

And he, with his eyes full used to reply – Don’t you worry about that child. You will know, someday, how beautiful it is.

I lost him when I was in 1st standard.
Fortunately we visited Kashmir after that and every word he had ever said started to make sense.

The beautiful landscapes, shikara ride at Dal lake, prayers at Tulmul mata, the beautiful chinar trees. Could anything be any more perfect.
That was the time I realized – everyone was right. My grandfather’s face was in front of me, as calm as a stream, and he was saying –
Agar firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast,
Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast

  1. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
    I have read this post and if I could I wish to
    suggest you some interesting things or suggestions.

    I want to read more things about it! Saved as a favorite,
    I like your web site! I am sure this article has touched all the internet visitors, its really really
    fastidious article on building up new weblog. http://starbucks.com

  2. I think everything published was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    what if you were to write a killer title? I ain’t saying
    your information isn’t good., however suppose
    you added something to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean | Jannat – e –
    Kashmir | – Kalpana Razdan is kinda boring. You should peek at
    Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create article headlines to grab people to click.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it
    might bring your posts a little bit more interesting. http://www.vintagehouserestaurant.com/

    1. Thanks for the insights. I will surely include your suggestions . Always up for constructive criticism. 🙂

  3. I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
