“An Oddity in Srinagar, Kashmir”
I was in search of topics for my doctoral dissertation. So I decided to cover the war in Kashmir (in 2000.)
There were NO westerners to be seen... anywhere.
As a photojournalist, I was a rarity who always drew a crowd.
This gentleman brought a little boy up close for a better look.
My interpreter, Mr. Mohammed, later told me that the man wanted the boy to see “a white guy” so that he would not be afraid, if he ever came across another one.
