my laptop is full of images and video footage of the Dal lake, of old houses, downtown mosques, sun temples in Parihaspur and Martand, the Lidder river in Pahalgam protected by snow peaks, night sky, rain …but the trusty apple has gone into a coma with no chance of revival. maybe one day I will retrieve those fingerprints of my experiences in Kashmir until then I wonder how I will complete my proposal for the biennale as I look at these iPhone shots

am so happy that this photograph and some more will be used by the UN on social
media to focus attention on water related issues around the world !!! water for me
has been an inspiration not only because it sustains life but is just so beautiful and
completely unstoppable in its flow. it’s the one truth there is.
