Chander Suta Dogra writes in the Outlook Magazine about the first railway line of the Kashmir Valley.

Covering a 60km stretch from Budgam to Anantnag, the line is now ready and is expected to be operational any time soon. This is the first time a railway line is being constructed within the Kashmir valley, and needless to say, there is a lot of excitement

Excerpts:
