“Kashmir is my motherland and I am deep-rooted with that state. It lacks those avenues which take you to the heights of your career. So, my next choice was Bangalore, which I felt is more close to my native – be it weather, its people or their behavior – it resembles more to Kashmir. Development wise, it is better than rest of the country,” said IT professional, Basharat Amin Shah.
Living happily with his wife and twin daughters Basharat is deep-rooted with Kashmir.
He has visited the valley several times, especially as part of campus recruitment for his company.
He said that last year he visited Srinagar for campus recruitment and felt good to visit a place where have studied and now recruiting people for your organization.
Basarat and his Bangalore-based Kashmiri friends are also planning to set up an institute with modern teaching facilities in the Kashmir valley.
The Kashmiri youth are doing very good. I have lot of people from Kashmir who are doing very good in my organization.
But, it takes time for them to settle. We need to bring change in the style of education in Kashmir.
Like in Bangalore, the industry contributes and recommends the syllabus. But, in Kashmir we are going with the conventional system of education.
People like Basharat Amin have set an example for other youth in the Kashmir valley to avail the best available opportunities across the country.
