I've travelled the length and breadth of India but one piece of paradise has eluded me thus far - Kashmir, synonymous with a wealth of emotions and vistas foremost among which is the spirit of romance. To float along the serene Dal Lake in a fairytale houseboat with my beloved, wander among the fragrant markets of Srinagar, stroll over the flower-covered slopes of Gulmarg and Sonmarg and brave the rapids of Lidder River at Pahalgam - that would truly be a dream come true. Who knows how long this unearthly beauty will be accessible to us? Who knows what tomorrow brings? Something tells me that I need to seize the day and surrender to the snowy charms of Kashmir now.
