Editor at Portmir Foundation; liberal by values, opposed to tribalism in all its guises; love languages and cultures - want to study as many as I can; proficient in some; opposed to social and political injustice wherever it rears its ugly head even from within my own British-Pahari community (a little unsure about the juxtaposition. The term 'Pahari' can mean different things to different people - stay posted. Grandparents from the Himalayan mountains of Jammu, presently split between India and Pakistan - get the impression no one cares about the people stuck between the LOC - currently researching the 'Pahari-cultural-heritage' outside political and territorial paradigms and the narratives of the political 'mainstream'. Ultimately, hoping to create a space for members of the British-Pahari community to discover their own wonderful heritage. I believe - 'life' is a wok in progress so nothing is fixed even our thoughts! If you're from the region, feel free to contact me - always prepared to widen my intellectual horizons and stand corrected - don't insult me though. Be grown up and tell me why you think I'm wrong. If you make sense, I'll change my views. My opinions are not necessarily those of the Portmir Foundation; the Foundation does not do censorship; if you disagree with any us, and you're from our background, write your own opinion piece and we'll publish it. You can contact us at info@portmir.org.uk.
