I went to Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir to document elections in the Valley, but left feeling that this was the main story. Three months after one of India’s worst urban disasters, the story of how Kashmiris are struggling to reconstruct their homes and cities has faded fast from mainstream national news. I am hoping to go back to Srinagar in about ten days to continue documenting the reconstruction effort there for the next few weeks. If anyone knows of a cheap room I can rent during my stay there, your suggestions would be appreciated.
