Curfews continued for one or two weeks and street battles went on, sometimes with rockets and grenades also, in addition to AK 47 guns. The Kashmiri homes are usually well stocked with food because of prolonged harsh winters and so they could manage their kitchen even if curfew continued for ten or twelve days. Early morning some vegetable vendors would secretly arrive to do some brisk business and some meat and chicken shops would also open for an hour or so. The Masjid Committees in the...

Genesis of Kashmir unrest
By K.N. Pandita Inexplicable suspense loomed large over Kashmir politics this early summer.
