A month has passed since the Centre abrogated Article 370 and Article 35A of the Constitution, stripping Jammu and Kashmir of the special rights and privileges it enjoyed.

How has life been in the Valley in the past month? Is everything “normal”?This is a special edition of The Quint's Big Story podcast, with your host Vishnu Gopinath.

In this special edition of the Big story, we look at life in the Valley, a month since the effective revocation of Article 370.

Mainstream media has been going on about ‘normalcy’ having been restored in the Valley, peace and life as usual… things being fine, phone lines slowly being restored, the Valley welcoming the abrogation of Article 370… happy people everywhere.

What the noise has drowned out are the voices of the Valley's people, who are facing the grim reality.

And, contrary to what most mainstream media is claiming, all is not well on the ground.

It's these voices that you will hear in this podcast.
