  • An ancient mosque with unique architecture in the heart of old Srinagar. Crumbling. Dusty. Pigeon haven. Stacks of withering Qur'ans of every shape, size and color lying unbreathing on tattered shelves. Stark, brutish, gnarled oaks standing lonely; solitary stumps in the corners of the courtyard. Me and the wandering beggar with the bright eyes.
