I am, right now, standing on a flyover. Heavy snowfall is seen here. Both kids, as well as adults, can slip while climbing these stairs because of that.

One can die after falling from there. This stands way high above the ground. So you must keep this in mind: do not come through this way.


'We Are Happy For Her Talent'

My parents were happy when I reported about the poor conditions of the roads near my house in Kashmir's Budgam district. These roads were dirty; garbage was thrown there. In fact, it is so dirty that even guests can’t come through this way. They will say that our roads are so bad and dirty.

I am happy that she has so much talent. She keeps watching content on mobile and TV. She says she wants to be a YouTuber.

My video went viral, but for now, I just want the government to look after the poor roads.

Now, she is constantly telling me that she wants to be a photographer. She is asking me to create a YouTube channel and says she will become a reporter and create several videos.
