Not to be confused with Kashmir Valley

Kashmir (Kashmiri: کٔشِیر / कॅशीर; Hindi: कश्मीर; Urdu: کشمیر‎), archaically spelled Cashmere, is in the northwestern region of South Asia. Until the mid-19th century, the term Kashmir geographically denoted only the valley between the Great Himalayas and the Pir Panjal mountain range. As of 2021, the wider region of Kashmir is disputed among Pakistan, India and China.


  • In Kashmir, rights relating to life, liberty, dignity of the people, and freedom of expression guaranteed by the Constitution, embodied in the fundamental covenants and enforceable by courts of law, have been gravely violated.
  • Whenever a VIP visit to Kashmir is planned, like that of Prime Minister, a hundred messages would fly around saying, 'finish this fellow', 'beat that guy', 'demolish that house' etc.
  • Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
    Like thoughts inside a dream.
    Heed the path that led me to that place,
    Yellow desert stream.
    My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon
    Will return again.
    Sure as the dust that floats b'hind you
    When movin' through Kashmir.
    • Led Zeppelin: Kashmir
