"…Wanted to share with you all a recent experience that I had while travel in Kashmir and wanted to just see what you feel about it. I love visiting the Dargas. The last time I went to Kashmir I was visiting this very famous Sufi Darga called Kanchai Mala in Srinagar. And while entering I was asked my religion and before I could reply, my assistant said that I was Abdullah Khan and of course immediately I was let inside the mosque. But it was something I was not very comfortable about.…"

"…Hey, Anna, it's so great to hear your voice here. Always. You always have such a generous, expansive, inviting conversation with us. And this swell is no different. First, I want to say how sorry I am that you had that experience and that this experience you just mentioned where the lie got you in on some levels is even worse. It's embarrassing.…"

"…I remember visiting the Holden temple at Amritsar and I think that was one of the most divine experiences for me personally and to think that it was also the site of a horrible massacre in the early 80s. But yet how it continues to retain that serenity, the sense of calm that you get when you are close to the sanctum, it's really unbelievable. It was a beautiful experience and one that I will never be able to forget the rest of my life.…"

"…And I thought that it's really sad that the way this country is turning like you mentioned, I think yes, we are not progressing anymore. And yesterday I was watching this beautiful film called The Great Indian Kitchen. And again, it was talking about the suburban Lord, Aya Park cult where it excludes women from entering the temple because of tradition, belief, whatever. And I just feel that all this patriarchy is so insecure of itself that it refuses to move on and accept that times are changing.…"

"…Hi, thank you for your comment. You know, what I feel sad about is I don't know if we are evolving as human beings because sometimes I feel that we are moving backwards because there was a time when Dargas beat in Kashmir, beat in other parts of India were much more inclusive and honestly not in terms of women. I think women have always been discriminated and they're separate entrance and the space is much smaller.…"
