Preserving memories of a vintage Kashmir in photographs, one house at a time.
Using a ruthless marketing strategy and partisan visions of persecution, ‘The Kashmir Files’ seeks to rewrite history and distort reality.
In spaces constituted from violence and silence like Kashmir, translation can emerge as a handy tool to create narrative communities within the world at large..
Once again, Kashmir is the altar on which India is trying to refashion its national identity, this time with a distinctive majoritarian flavour

WeChat, a popular Chinese messaging app, has suspended some accounts linked to non-fungible tokens (NFTs), to prevent speculation in digital assets, according to various media reports.
The platform said it has “rectified” accounts that it found were promoting NFT market speculation, and hence, could drive up prices. There are no regulations against NFTs in China, although the trading of cryptocurrencies was banned last year.
Elsewhere, automaker Mahindra&Mahindra has announced that it has sold a digital NFT based on the Thar – which it had launched earlier this week – for a record Rs 11 lakh just days after the launch. The group became the first Indian automotive company to enter the NFT space.
Mahindra Group chairperson Anand Mahindra tweeted: “An overwhelming response to the auction, which means it’s almost as expensive as buying the real #Thar! But that makes sense, since the NFT is truly one of a kind.”
