At best Kashmir is still disputed, at worst for Pakistan, they have not right over it.
"Chai from kashmir" "Kashmiri chai"

There is a portion of Kashmir that has been occupied by Pak for some decades now. Many successive governments of India have not done anything about it besides a lot of hot talk -- similar to what you are doing.

Chalta hai, life goes on.

Re: What would you have done?

I would have gone to the booth and asked if they had any Baloch Chai

Khalistan is not a state. It was a Pakistan inspired movment for a separate Sikh country. It started in 80s and died down in 90s, but thanks to social media, it keeps getting mentioned. There was another thread here which said that Canada's defence minister also is supposedly a Khalistan supporter. Now, i was wondering if some wanted to set up a separate stall.


On another note. Looks like this is an 'occupanational hazard' of being in Canada.

There was an international festival in my kids school when i was in Smelly Pai's gaon. Lot of countries were there including India, but no sign of Pakistan or for that matter Nepal, SL, etc.

In my new Gaon, which is also in Mid west, the 'International Festival' was just an Indian festival. There was just one lady from Latvia, who set up like an east european stall. Many gora teachers were also wearing Indian outfits.

More details later on.
So Here it goes - It was in 90s when i was working in a PSU in Orissa. They had recruited some Kashmiris too hoping to keep them away from Terror this way. There were about 5 from J & K in our batch of 100 or so. 2 were Sardarjis from Kashmir who used to keep flip flopping. 1 was a peaceful guy from Jammu who claimed to support India and that he tried to get into NDA but failed. He also used to talk about CRPF etc going on a killing spree. 2 were peaceful guys from Kashmir valley They used to love supporting Pakistan in cricket matches and that 'Why is India killing its citizens in Kashmir' and so on.

Now, one of these was actually the son of a big shot cop from Srinagar. Apparently none of his friends or acquaintances knew that he was 'working in India'. They were told that he was in Gulf. His dad once visited him, told him that he had a good life and he should continue in his job until he got a state government job back in J & K. He also caught up on some Jawani series movies before heading back.

I was living in a hostel, but couple of friends (southies) moved into an independent house. i used to visit them frequently for 'spiritual company'. On one of these visits, no one was there in their house. So, i knock the neighbor's door who happened to this Kashmiri guy. He welcomes me and once i head in his place i see some 4-5 guys from Kashmir. Me thinks 'So, he is giving a refuge to all these separatists here?'. One of those guys actually read my mind and said "We do business here". I was supposedly of carpets or rugs. Anyway, they offered me this Kashmiri Chai with salt. I finished all of it. It was a different taste, but i am not stuck to one taste (unlike most gults)
