TM Krishna's touching tribute to Kashmiris

Sabrangindia 07 Aug 2019
Carnatic music vocalist and author TM Krishna has released a moving video reaching out to and expressing solidarity with Kashmiris in wake of the virtual scrapping of Section 370.

In the video, one can see a page with a few words from Agha Shahid Ali's poem Postcard from Kashmir. As Krishna reads out the heart-rending poem, one can hear beeps and clicks of non-functional telephone lines in the background. A mechanical voice is also heard saying, "Incoming call facility to the dialed number is currently not available."
 
It is eerie how powerfully this video showcases how people in the state have been cut off from the rest of the country in wake of a communication black out.
