Life In Shutdown

It was weekend and Kashmir shut against Masrat Alam’s latest detention. The day coincided with the arrival of Mufti’s Durbar that shifted to summer capital with a fleet of 100+ vehicles. As rage and rest went hand in hand, Durdana Bhat captures life in shutdown


It was metaphorical shutdown at many places.


The overcrowded Batamaloo Bazaar was looking deserted for the day.


But at certain places, it was rage than rest that had kept cops on their toes.


This road stretch in Batamaloo never seems to have a rest. But for the day, it had a breather.


Amid shutdown, this little girl had a day out with her mother.


At entrance of Maisuma, this elderly couple was out on street to have something to talk about.


At a short distance from the residence of jailed Hurriyat (G) leader, Masrat Alam, cops had a hard time to contain street ire.


At one fringe of Maisuma, boys had a different day out.


With Maisuma calm for the day, cops were happily having tea in the area.
