A week has passed since the abrogation of Article 370 but Kashmir’s state of affairs haven’t become normal yet. Phone lines and the internet connections remain suspended, leaders of opposition parties are still under house arrest and Eid celebrations are hardly celebratory. Add to it, there's not much clarity on what the situation is on ground because of the restricted communication.

Two parallel and contrasting narratives of Kashmir have emerged: one from the officials, and the other based on certain reports. For this episode of The Big Story, we speak to The Quint’s correspondents and journalists on the ground to get an idea of what's actually going on in Kashmir on the day of Eid.
