The Kashmir holds its unique standard for the mesmerizing beauty to which the women folk adds glare. From the garden of sowing and collection to the cottages of weaving and production, from cooking delicacies to serving and selling, from making of the house to the living of the life, they are in the lines the marrow of the Kashmiri society. Youthful bright ladies to old laced faces all have stories and narration is no hidden to the eyes which know to value the real aspects of the beauty. A Salute to the Women Folk of Kashmir, Without you Kashmir is incomplete.
