Facinating site, lots of information on each topic and I like the way you have covered more than one aspect of Kashmiri culture in detail. I stumbled accross the 'click on a picture' feature to pop up a larger image, which you have done on most pictures. However it wasn't obvious as my mouse cursor didn't change to show it was hovering over something I could click on. I use IE7 however I'm not sure if this is a bug. I appreciate the numerous links to other sites so I could continue to research the items I'm interested in. Thanks for taking the time to put this together!

Excellent Site! I have enjoyed reading about the history and the maestros. A great insight into the world of Sufiana music which has always had a very limited number of listeners due to its difficult and complicated lyrics. This site will hopefully open this aspect of Kashmiri culture to the rest of us. The site is easy to follow and the links work well. My only suggestion would be to, perhaps include translations of the songs and of any reference made in Kashmiri, Persian or Urdu. I will keep checking this site for updates. Well done!

I have gone through almost most of the website and think that it provides a wealth of information about the history, politics and music of Kashmir, not only for Kashmiri's as their cultural heritage but also for the world at large. I am sure that with the passage of time, you will update and improve the website further. The site is a cultural resource in its own right.with best wishes.

I'd suggest sorting out your copyright statement (i.e. make it clearer so that the owners of the music and yourself are covered in terms of 'media piracy').Fascinating site - so much to learn about Kashmir.

as politics interests me more than music - i was immediately arrested by the political section- went thru the chronology of the maharajas- a sad tale , it seems, all the way along for kashmiri muslims- arrived at sheri-kashmir and a mundane (but one that could not be avoided) chore interrupted me- nevertheless, what i read was very informative and a summarised, but important, overview of our history - looking forward to going thru the site whenever the mind and todays shackles permit.
