With half the Kashmir burning after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, many parts of the state has been put under curfew.

But despite the strict curfew, a Kashmiri woman and her husband recently braved the threat, so they can get some food across to their Kashmiri Pandit friend.

Zubeda Begum, and her husband had received a telephone call from their friend Diwanchand Pandit, who told them they had no food in their house.

“She had called me in the morning saying her family needed food supplies. They have an ailing grandmother staying with them, (so) I am taking the food to them. It is difficult but we are trying to reach them.”

Their friend Diwanchand Pandit, lives in a flat in Jawahar Nagar which is all the way across Jhelum river.

With strict curfew being imposed in the city, all the shops and establishments in the area have been shut for days, nor is there any means of transport available on the roads.

 

But even with no means of transport, the couple walked for miles just to reach their friend.



For Zubeda, the risk and effort was all worth it, and was compensated with the warmth that she received from Pandit family.

For Diwanchand, the gesture was overwhelming.

“Everyone is suffering here. We are so glad that these people came here. This is where the humanity lies.”

Diwanchand and his family have been living in Kashmir for many years. His wife is a teacher in a local school where Zubeda also works.

His family, had been in desperate need for help and with crisis mounting in the valley their situation had only gotten worse.

But even in this violence, people like Zubeda still prevail and set a perfect example of how humanity still lives even in times of adversity.
