Kashmir: A final journey
Uma Shori Gigoo left Srinagar 23 years ago. When she returns, it is for a final departure
On 24 June 2012, my parents and grandmother undertook a trip from Jammu to Srinagar. The plan was to go to Tulmul, Hari Parbat, Zaethyar, Ishbar, Nagbal, Nishat Bagh and other places where they once lived, where their ancestors were cremated, where they dreamt of nurturing their children and grandchildren, and where they wished to die in peace.
