Duty Bound, Peace Found!

A child’s ability to smile can easily be the metric of success in a region!

A lot of people have asked why I did what I did in Kashmir(Reference my page Sherryoscope on Instagram). Well the answer is this…

This was the first kid out of the 5 I met on my first walk around the rural Kashmir or in some sense, the real Kashmir. The kid didn’t have the natural child-like happiness and I felt like I am to blame!

I just couldn’t stop thinking about this situation. And felt responsible!

Why do we make everything about the government of our country? What about our duties towards our brethren? The kids of the villages are just as much our future as the kids in the cities! When did we humans become so selfish as to make things change only for OUR offsprings?

There is a need of winning hearts not borders. Kashmir is in need of the very Indian spirit of helping those in need that we hear before elections. I feel those who support a leadership can be the arms of that leadership too. Pick up your bag and go help kids be kids. Train them in english, hindi, culture, etiquette, dance, music or some life sustaining skill!

This was a temporary fix with some quick wit and humour but I knew I had to do more!

Do something instead of blaming circumstances!

I have a plan to go back again this time with artillery in the form of more people to uplift their lives, comment below to join in!

Even if you’re in some other part of the world and can send aid in the form of ideas, we would appreciate the help! Do join in!
