Traced Rare Photograph of A Girl From Scrap Seller, Kashmir Citizen Seeks Help In Getting Her Address

by Tahir Bhat

SRINAGAR: In an interesting development, a Srinagar resident has located the hard copy of a certificate and a photograph in which a non-Muslim girl, named Renuka Choudhary is seen receiving honours from erstwhile Prime Minister, Mrs Indira Gandhi. Now he is looking to trace the “girl” so that he could give it to her.

A rare photo that was traced from scrap by a person and wants it to give it to the young lady

Ms Choudhary was a student of Mallinson Girls School and the photograph was taken in 1981.

The photograph was traced from a scarp seller in Baba Demb.

Soon after, he put a post on his Facebook page.

“could feel the pain of migration from the roots @Kashmiri Pandits
student of Mallinson Girls School Srinagar
found this photograph and her certificate with the scrap seller at Babdem, any information so that I can handover it to her by post, perphaps her mothers remarks are written on this photograph in hindhi or Sanskrit”

The man who posted it on Facebook is Showkat Wani, who has studied at Burn Hall and has been an Assistant Professor. The style of the message indicates that he was emotionally overwhelmed while writing.

Seemingly the photograph seems to have been clicked in Srinagar where the girl Renuka Choudhary had participated Shanker International Competition in 1981 in which she had contributed a poem Life.

If any reader can locate the lady, help Wani restore the biggest photograph from her school.
