In an attempt to increase awareness about the life, culture, beauty and political issues in Kashmir, a group of journalists have come together and organised an exhibition of pictures.
Called Kashmir Klicks, the event will take place in the city today and aims to make just about enough money to fund a return trip to Kashmir for a group of journalists from around the country.
“Not too much is reported from the state and how life is like over there these days. We want to fund a trip for some journalists to take them to that part of the country, so they can experience things first hand, and then return and write about it. That will spread awareness,” says Dilnaaz Boga, a freelance journalist, who spent all of last year working with Kashmir Dispatch, before recently returning to the city. Apart from Boga, the photographs on display have been captured by an assorted group of Indian and international journalists like Yawar Nazir Kabli and Malik Sajad, who have reported news from Kashmir in text and in imagery for publications around the world.
The event, which has been organised by Kashmir Dispatch in association with Le Sutra, the exhibit venue, will present a collection of over 100 pictures. The prices of the same will range from anything from Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000.
Visit Kashmir Klicks at Le Sutra, 14, Union Park, near Olive Restaurant in Bandra (west), from 11 am to 8 pm
