(Some time in 2011, a stone-pelter in Srinagar offered to show me the fabled old city through his eyes. Here is what he told me. The first-person account first appeared in Fountain Ink magazine in Decmeber 2011. The views expressed by the stone-pelter are his, not mine.)
Welcome to Srinagar. Would you like to come with me to Downtown? I want you to see the real Srinagar.
