Interaction of Usanas Foundation CEO Abhinav with the youth of Kashmir at the Real Kashmir office in Srinagar on 24th Jan. 2021.
The youth of Kashmir discussed the developments post the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir. They explained how, after the abrogation of Article 370, the narrative is shifting from conflict to development and governance. They expressed their deep dissatisfaction with the bureaucrats' apathy and poor efforts in governance and development. Sana discussed the role of patriarchal values in hindering the growth of women and also the fact that the worst victims of conflict are women and children. Bilal suggested that the youth should be encouraged and helped to pursue their passion. Many music shows and fashion shows can be organized in Kashmir. There is a strong need to boost employment as the youth wants to leave the violence behind and move ahead.
