A View from Washington D.C. (via Jammu)

Tonnes of Salute for your Channel 

(referring to my youtube channel: tanveerandkashmir)

Dear Tanveer (I hope thats your name),

This is J S from Washington DC. I am 30 yrs old and I was born and bought up in Jammu, India and spent a large part of my teens traveling around the beautiful state of Jammu Kashmir on Indian side. My grandparents were from Chakothi, AJK and they always talked about the good times it was under british. There was rule of law and order and corruption was unheard of. It was so much fun to hear about the life before 1947 from their own words. 

Luckily I came across your channel and I was so happy to see videos of your sojourn in AJK. Your videos have just put visuals on the stories I had heard. I personally wish the partition had never happened and even better if J&K had become an independent nation. I cannot believe how the language, daily life and culture are so same. If I close my eyes and listen I wont be able to judge if its an Indian Kashmiri or Pakistani Kashmiri speaking. I really appreciate your work and the motivation behind it. You are really in love with your people and its amazing.
Please carry on the good work.

Warm Regards
