I was not meant to be a writer, if anything, I was aiming at being an actor full of fun and frolic and making people dance to the tunes of optimism. But history created me and produced me at this juncture of our time, when Kashmiri people struggle to be recognized as people with any valid identity. For me the ultimate quest to know, who I am and where do I belong opened the persistent question of "why Kashmir is the way it is"? occupied, bruised, neglected and looted. So here I am on a journey of being a real actor.
