Wordless Wednesday: Winters in my hometown, Kashmir

4:26 PM Priyanka 26 Comments





kanger, kangri, or kangar, a pot filled with hot embers used by Kashmiris beneath their traditional clothing to keep the chill at bay

The pinkish colored salted tea called "noon chai" or "sheer chai"
 The traditional kashmiri green tea made with saffron, spices, and almonds or walnuts, here served with one of many forms of mouth savoring Kashmiri breads.

The traditional winter wear: Pheren


 The famous Persian poet, Firdaus had said of Kashmir, 
Agar Firdaus bar ru-e-zamin ast, Hami ast o- hami ast o- hami ast.
meaning, 
If there is heaven on earth, it is here, it is here, it is here..

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like
yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I wonder why people link the beauty of Kashmir with winters mostly. Kashmir looks amazing in all seasons, especially autumn. I've been living here since 1998 and I find Kashmir beautiful each and every day.
