Drass War Memorial
All my love for country, honour, trust for the soldiers and patriotism came together to choke up my throat with emotions. I was overwhelmed with the stories, pictures and explanations about war. But sad with the question on how can a human kill human? Why war? What is gained? No words could explain my feelings during the visit to the memorial. And no answers could overcome my sadness. Feeling proud about our soldiers we sat in our vehicle and traveled few minutes to enter the town- Drass.

Gar firdaus ruhe zamin ast, Hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast. “If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here.” This is how the Sufi mystic Amir Khusrow has described the Kashmir Valley, and Srinagar is at the heart of the valley. Smack in the middle of the city is the mighty Dal Lake, its placid water reflecting the vivid kaleidoscope of innumerous houseboats, shikaras (taxi-boats), and the snow-capped Pir Panjal range: a sight that will make your heart skip a beat. The city is home to the state-of-the-art Mughal Gardens, Shalimar Bagh and Nishant Bagh being the most famous of them. The gardens exhibit the Mughal taste of nature and the philosophy of disciplining nature rather than imitating it: fountain pools and canals, meticulously manicured hedges, and motley flowerbeds. Also known as the Kashmiri Venice, Srinagar is a place not to be missed by those seeking a tranquil refuge in the lap of the Himalayas.
