Do you ever connect to a person or a thing just because they belong to the same place as yours?
I do. New Age Kashmir received a message a few days back, sharing with us a piece of very useful information and a beautiful request. It said-
“I am a Kashmiri girl, studying in Mumbai to achieve my dream of becoming a fashion designer. Like every other enthusiastic- passion driven girl, I was looking forward to buying a bag for my internship that would begin as soon as this summer vacation hit the year.
As my window shopping continued, I came across a brand named SHAKA on Amazon App.
And guess what? Shaka turned out to be a brand founded by three Kashmiri women from Anantnag. Anantnag. My home. Can you at your platform, New Age Kashmir” introduce Shaka? It will be an all-time proud feeling for Kashmiris around the globe.”
And we, adhered!
