Whenever we talk about Kashmir, what first comes to mind is conflict, violence, terrorism, and this list of negative things seems to have no end. What we forget is that the people of this state also have dreams, that the children here too have ambition and the zeal to turn them into a reality.

Recently, a video went viral on social media, where a schoolgirl in Kashmir, pretending to be a journalist, is delivering a news report of heavy rainfall in Shopian district.

The girl, 15-year-old Eiduha Iqbal, is seen standing outdoors and holding an object, pretending it is a news reporter’s microphone. She “interviews” a couple of children for her story and delivers her report with such conviction and clarity that renowned journalists like Barkha Dutt took to Twitter to appreciate her.
