Kashmir Shop

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai

Look what I found between all the colorful Kashmirian tissues here in one of these shops around the Meeneakshi Temple at my 7 o'clock evening walk in the center of the city. A beauty in front of Nandi, Nataradjan dancing Shiva and lots of oher fine souvenirs.

Young Kashmirians escape the war going on in their own homeland, they try to build out a more secure life also here in Tamil Nadu with the handicrafts they take along from their parents and people who work on between dangerous situations. At least once a year they go back to visit their parents and take more goods along for their business. A diaspora in the same country.
