After the government of India scrapped the article 370, Jammu and Kasmir has been witnessing information blackout from the last 11 days. With fewer reports from the ground, many media houses depended upon government sources to report the Kasmir issue and as a result, the news came into a conflicting argument with the other news carried out by International media houses like BBC, Aljazeera, and Reuters claiming in their reports that there were protest march and sloganeering in the valley.
When the government claims that everything is normal in the valley, this documentary from the ground shows a different dimension.
