Episode 26 | Student life in Kashmir after removal of Article 370

Episode 26,  Aug 06, 2020, 05:16 PM

"It's better now. We at least have network now, we have 2G," says Quratulain Rehbar, a Kashmiri journalist on how things have become marginally better as compared to the total communication clampdown last year, following revocation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status. The reasons cited by the government for abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35A included facilitating development of the state. 

This series will attempt to revisit where things stand a year from 'Voices from the Lockdown'.  While the initial podcast was created to facilitate a smooth flow of information from the state under lockdown, episodes to come will attempt to reevaluate things as they stand today. Through the lives of the people in the thick of it all, each episode will explore the different facets of a life lived in constant lockdown, and the impact it has on the community.

In today's episode, punctuated with opinions from students and teachers, Quratulain Rehbar will help understand the impact the past year has had on  education in Kashmir.
