GEC Spotlight: Carolina Asia Center | “Flower Vendor on Dal Lake” | Srinagar Nagar, Kashmir, India
Kashmir is one of the most controversial and militarized regions in the world. The residents living on Dal Lake are calm and friendly despite the violence and stringent army presence in the area. Vendors row along the lake spotted with house boats, stopping in homes and hotels to sell their products. After making a sale at a nearby guest house, this vendor paddles his flower business along the water looking for more customers.
