THE THICK BLANKET OF WATER INSIDE ACHHABAL GARDEN OF KASHMIR


                                                                               



A THICK BLANKET OF WATER DANCING INSIDE ACHHABAL GARDEN OF KASHMIR.

( It is believed that river Brengi which disappears at Dewalgaam in the limestone fissures, emerges and gushes out from the SOSANWAR hill to form Achhabal  water spring . Old name of Achhabal was Akshavala .It was founded by King Aksha who is believed to have  reigned over Kashmir from 486-326 B.C.. Kalhana  also records the name of the village  Akshavala .It was later extensively remodelled by the Mughal rulers in 1620 as a retreat for NUR JAHAN..)


The thick blanket of water laughed to its heart’s fill. Carefree and happy, it danced down the hill.Does it know who wept and for how much time? Does it know about the tear streams that keep coming down our eyes . I believe NO. And kashmiri poet Dina Nath Naadim too conveys this feeling in this couplet …

Paan Tchaadiri Gayee Aaiss Aaiss Neel
Tuss na khabar kaaem Kotaah Voadh….


( Dina Nath Naadim )


The Thick blanket of water laughed to its Heart's fill,

Never did it  know as to who other wept and for  how long…
